Just finished the Port Orford pullover from Oat Couture. It might be for me and it might not. Oat Couture is at www.oatcouture.com. I liked working with this pattern - it's been in my stash for a while. Used www.knitpicks.com Wool of the Andes in dark greeny blue so it wasn't expensive to do.

It's out! There's a new pattern on trickswithsticks. You can find it here: https://www.trickswithsticks.ca/downloads/old-shale-tee/. Organic DK weight cotton meant to layer over a T shirt or cami. Nice for the Fall weather.

One of my favourite places for all things knitting is Purl Soho. Purl Soho is about a delicious colour palette of sophisticated neutrals combined with the brightest colours you've ever seen on this planet. And it works. The company has combined fabric, felt and natural fibers all within the palette so that you can create both wearables and home accessories that all work together.

Better yet, they have an extensive list of projects, many of them free and accompanied by tutorials to help you recreate them. Here's the latest knitting one one that's been added to their list:

Most of the designs are simple to create and are usually worked with using a single yarn or one yarn in a few colours. The emphasis is on texture and on natural materials: linen, wool, cotton.

Everything can be ordered online or you can visit their store...in New York of course at 459 Broome Street in Soho. They ship to Canada in a week at a premium. They run classes and events at the NY store.

My next project will be the Purl Soho Pullover, 2017 version. You can subscribe to their newsletter on their site.
Note: I am not affiliated to Purl Soho. I just like them.

Longing for spring weather. Got an idea for a cotton knit shirt I'm working on. Our newest pattern will be a classic channel island Guernsey. Just have to type and size the pattern. Here's a picture.

I am continuing to work on the Nursery Block sweater and it's coming along nicely. The band shown above features on the front and the back of the sweater. To help with the spacing of the animal blocks I've added some eccentric letter blocks. The blocks are not centered on the band - makes for more interest that way. Here's the band for another size to show you how this is cooking up: [ 148 more words ]
