Knitting, design, wool and other gatherings….

Winnowing

1 Comment

Before I can get around to post my before mentioned pullover design, I thought I might pop in to tell you what´s on my needles at the moment. «Winnowing» from Brooklyn Tweed, designer: Bristol Ivy. You can find it here: brooklyntweed . 

I downloaded this pattern a while ago, and forgot all about it, thinking it looked a bit too technical for a knitter not too familiar with lace-knitting. But once I started, I realized I was wrong, and now I feel like the «master of lace-knitting»! This pattern might not be a typical lace, but still……. I feel on the top of it!

The yarn is Blackhill Højlandsull (lambswool) from garnudsalg.dk, in the color «Midnat»

This is what I would call a perfect TV knit! Easy enough to knit while watching TV, and technically challenging enough not to fall asleep. I might even knit me another one…. I´ve got some cashmere/wool fine lace in the color «Kit», also from garnudsalg.dk. (not currently in stock) …or maybe in Koigu, KPPPM, 100% Merino, color 307,from pinnsvindesign.noIf I hurry up with the current one, I might get started on the new one in time for the new season of Downton Abbey on Norwegian television in just a few days. Oh joy!

I´m a dedicated knitter. I share my house with an unknown amount of wool. My kind of wool seems to multiply like quicksilver, -drop a skein to the floor and you get 10 in return….. (well… get is maybe an exaggeration….) So I keep on knitting to try to get on top of it, enjoying the process, the texture of the yarn and the endless possibilities in creating new garments.
