i believe i promised you a post of an f.o :)
this is a test knit i did for by annie claire. and i have to say, i have knit this with the softest yarn ever. i loved the whole process of knitting this shawl.
i love the simple beauty to this pattern. and it even used a few new (to me) techniques!
garter knitting is one of my fave looks these days... and i really think that this yarn showcases the stitch beautifully.
i knit this with 2 skeins of cascade eco duo, an organic yarn... 70% alpaca... 30% merino... and like i said, it's the softest yarn ever! i used the colourway almond smoke.
this pattern will be available really soon, and trust me, you'll want to knit it! it's such a lovely shawl to wear. and would make incredible christmas gifts too! note though, i used every bit of 2 skeins... with only a little to spare at the end.. make sure you do your gauge swatch on this one, even though it's an accessory. :)
annie calls this coastal fog... i love it! it's really the perfect name for it. it's so soft, fluffy, warm, and just luxurious! the pattern will be available soon! you'll want to keep an eye out for it for sure!
annie not only designs amazingly beautiful patterns, but she's got a beautiful line of yarns which she dyes organically. this girl also knows how to professionally shear sheep too! annie wanted to become more connected to the yarn that she loves to knit with and wanted to make that connection easier for us.... seriously, she inspires me so much!

i'd love to know what you're up to today! i'm fully surrounded by yarn, and i'm as happy as a clam being this busy. i heart knitting season. it's the best, complete with teas, lattes, good company, and much much yarn. what are you working on ? xoxo
