I’ve joined the tradition of knitting a project for Stitches. With Stitches West just around the corner, I put the finishing touches on my second Tangled Yoke Cardigan, this time in a mossy color.
I still take delight in Eunny Jang’s ingenious cabling around the cardi’s yoke. If I wasn’t worried about appearing obsessed, I’d make a third of theses sweaters in a straw color. Or maybe red. Or grey. Or… oh dear, how many colors does Rowan Felted Tweed yarn come in?
I have a Japanese Maple that leafs out red in the spring. Doesn’t it look like fall?
I appreciate Knit Pick’s including me in their Independent Designers Program. You can read more about it and see other patterns here.
Many thanks to Susan Claudino for doing an awesome job knitting the sample for the Knit Picks Smock Top Sweater! She’s a talented knitter, and you can admire her work on her NoKnitSherlock Ravelry page.
For anybody who’d like a refresher on how to knit smocking, I’ll remind you I’ve posted a YouTube video that demonstrates the technique.
