WIP Wednesday

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a WIP Wednesday. I am closing in on finishing 2 projects. I am excited about that for sure. I need to invoke my 10 minute knitting rule…especially on this sweater. It hurts my hands at this point to knit the sleeves. But I’m so close. I have to finish it.

Modified Ursa Sweater made with 100% 3ply mohair

And the Conflagration scarf is within 1 or 2 more repeats and I can bind off.

What’s next? A new shawl. I can see it in my head. But I have to get it on paper, pick the yarn and cast on.

What’s on your needles? Reply to this blog and let me know…or better yet, send a photo!

Sweater Inspiration

Alto DK weight yarn

Have you started your Rhinebeck sweater yet? If not, think about using this wonderful yarn for your next sweater. It is our Alto. The yarn is DK weight and is a blend of superwash BFL wool and silk. It is very shiny and it has a wonderful drape. You can find it in our webstore.

This sweater was knit with Alto in the Lightning colorway. It was designed by Corrine Walcher of Gingyknits. It is great to wear. It is so soft and has a great drape-y hand. There is a cabled lace on the side seams and down the sleeves. The pattern is available here on Ravelry. It is called The Land of Silver Birch.
