I had a lovely day yesterday, especially at Jessica Knits in Scottsdale. It was nice just to go in and visit a bit, check out all the latest yarns, get ideas and of course bring home a few new lovelies! I really was excited to see hard copy patterns for two of my favorite designers, Romi Hill and Stephen West. Needless to say, three patterns found their way into my shopping bag!
After visiting Jessica Knits and seeing the knitted sample of Cheyenne, I decided it was time to cast on this project, as summer is just around the corner and it will be perfect to wear in Phoenix!
In my basket is 9 skeins of Rowan Savannah in the color of Arizona. This is a very textured yarn and it is really showing the stitch definition of this pattern. As far as the design, this is going to be super quick and easy. The body is knitted in two pieces, side to side, with the ribbing and yoke then added at each edge of the lace portion. After reading the pattern, it could be adapted to knitting in the round. As many of you know, I do not care for seaming, but this really won’t be that bad.
I also made decent progress on my Angel and Pearls beaded scarf last night. I’ve finished the first chart and getting ready to start the main portion of the design. This is quite a challenge for me, but oh my do I love the result!
My vacation time is drawing to a close and to celebrate, my hubby took the day off to be with me today. We are heading off for breakfast, then a movie, so not too much time to knit this morning. It’s going to be quite a gorgeous day here today, and I hope it’s gorgeous where you are too!
Make it a beautiful day!
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
