I’ve been lucky enough here in Charlottesville to become friends with a lovely woman who makes beautiful color changing cotton yarn. Over the last few years I’ve knit a half dozen things with this yarn and have plans for a half dozen more.
Patterns L to R: Bubbles and Baubles, Butterfly Garden, Rose Annie, Reversible circles of Lace (all patterns can be found on Ravelry, of course)
Today seemed like a good day to take a group portrait of my shawls. I’ve made two others as well, but they are for my mom and my sister, so they don’t live with me. All those gradients look so pretty hanging in a row.
I’ve been joining “Wolle” at the local yarn and wool festivals to help out at her booth. It’s great fun to show off the yarn and to help people choose just the right colors. The Elfe sweater in the last Knit Night post is also knit from Wolle’s yarn. I hope to have it finished in time to wear to the Powatan Fiber Fest at the end of this month. So far, so good — it should be next week’s post!
