I’m happy to finally be back to knitting my top-down cardigan that I started last month. With all the other things I’ve had going on, this fun project was put down but is now back in my lap.
So, as a refresher, I’m currently working on the Simple Raglan Cardi by Lion Brand. I really do love the look so far and have decided that I will not be making this fitted as the pattern calls for, as well slightly rounded and do not care for “fitted” garments.
My goal is to have this project completed by the end of the month for our vacation!
Last year I had the honor of designing a shawl pattern exclusively for the Yummy Yarn Studio. Honey Hugs, was the February design for the Wrapped in up in Yummy Yarn Club club members. You can purchase an e-Book that features this design, as well as designs from Meghan Jackson, Kourtney Robinson and the Yummy Yarn Studio.
Inspired by the warm rich honey tones of this yarn, I envisioned sunny fields of wheat, waving in the wind. This is a bottom up shawl design that uses short rows to give a slight curvature that will hug your shoulders to keep you toasty warm. This design is bottom up, includes written and charted instructions that have been tech edited.
This pattern will be available for individual download September 2012.
I love how this design turned out and the yarn, well it is indeed quite yummy!
I leave you this Wednesday with a photo of our honeysuckle that is now in full bloom. It smells divine and I wish you could see it, it’s quite gorgeous!
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
