Yarn Along



I am pleased to say I finally finished my Spire!!! I still need to take some finished pictures of it. But I'm very happy to have it off my needles. I handspun the yarn for the project. But for the knitted on edging I used Manos Fino yarn in the colorway Ivory Letter Opener. I am thrilled with how it turned out and can't wait to give it a proper photo shoot!!!

I've been busy writing a new pattern.  I have most of the pattern written up and not much to show for it. I've made lots of swatches and I have lots of notes. I'm glad to finally be knitting it! I am making two versions of it. One in Shibui Pebble yarn and the other the Loopy Ewe's yarn (the purple version).



Words can't explain how obsessed I am with the Pebble yarn. The yarn is amazing!!!!!!! I also love the Loopy Ewe's yarn, but the Pebble is hands down drool over worthy yarn.

I finished up another Standing Stones Worsted Cowl. This time I used 1 skein of Miss Bab's Yowza in the color way "Zombie Prom". I had to modify the pattern slightly by leaving off one repeat of the final chart, but I am very happy how it turned out. I always LOVE working with Yowza. It was also a great thing to knit after working on my Spire since it takes minimal effort to knit unlike the Spire.




Well that is it for my knitting that I can think about! I think I might have a few other WIPs floating around.

Oh my goodness! That shawl and cowl are just beautiful. My daughter was looking over my shoulder while I was reading your yarn Along post and instantly fell in love with the cowl. I know have an a request to knit her one for the autumn lol.

Spire is just gorgeous! And Standing Stones was just added to my Rav favorites. I have some nice handspun that would work perfectly for that.

Wow! you are a wonderful knitter! I put spire on my "to knit" list when I first saw your project a little while back. It looks so beautiful all finished now! I hope you will have many happy years together:)
