I used two yarns: Sublime Grey and Adele Stone. Adele is a local yarn. I love using local yarns, it feels like someone put as much care into the wool as I do into knitting it. The colours remind me of doves. Hence I named it Dove.
I made a biggish shawl collar. The collar was done over twice. But honestly I would liked it a wee bit different, can't put my finger on what though. All in all I love the colours and am sure I will make a lot use of it. Sleeveless vests are super practical for Cape Winters.
At the Craft meeting R. was knitting gorgeous sock with an amazing yarn. I naturally asked where she had it from. She not only informed me that she had it from Orion, she also told me that it was hand dyed and that only one ball of each exists.
On Thursday while going to pickup some more yarn for my cardigan at Orion, I remembered that. And as I asked Roger if he had any of that amazing yarn. He did not only have it, it just was brought in by Carle. It was really great to meet her! She gave me tips on how to use the yarn. I was a good girl and finish the Cardigan first, before casting on. After hours of browsing Ravelry I chose the Fawkes pattern. I do have to admit,that I was quite nervous about knitting socks- all the turning heels and grafting business made me weary. Then only pair of sock i ever made was in school, when I was eleven...an eternity ago!
Will leave you with a couple of photos of the progress:
And isn't the yarn just so yummy?
