Okay, so I bought the yarn at the boxing day sale. But still, it’s the newest (at least until I get my littleknits order…)
Ten skeins of Silk Garden that I’d been eyeing for awhile. I briefly thought about making the Sunrise Circle Jacket out of it, but that jacket really needs more structure than this yarn would give. Plus I could do with not making aNOTHER sweater at the moment. So it’s going to become the Lady Eleanor stole. Mmmmm, I’m looking forward to it.
I also bought six skeins of the softest yarn ever – Handmaiden 4ply cashmere. Mmmmmmmm. Yum. Destined to become the best sweater ever.
Mmmmmmmmmm- I can feel it all the way here!
Just mentioning Little Knits makes me want to click the “Buy” button.:) Beautiful Handmaiden cashmere. I can’t wait to see what you do with it.
Oooh, anxious to see what becomes of the cashmere!
Can’t wait to see what the cashmere becomes! May I also say “Mmmm…”
What colorway are you using for Lady Eleanor?
I’m new to the blog, and having been on an elimination diet for a year once myself, I had to write. Just wanted to let you know I had trouble reintroducing foods but eventually got referred to someone very skilled at something called Nabumdripad (sp?) Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET). You *really* have to be open to alternative medicine to try this one, but honestly it changed my life and now I can eat just about anything. If you are at all interested, and the reintroduction doesn’t work 100%, email me back and I’ll tell you what I know. In any event, I’m crossing my fingers for you. I hope you and your skin are 100% healthy soon. And I love the Vogue cabled sweater!
Me too, am planning to make a Lady Eleanor stole out of 9 skeins of Silk Garden. I absolutely adore Silk Garden, so I look forward to this project. You where lucky to find Silk Garden on sale!
Me three. I have 9 skeins of Slik Garden (on sale) awaiting to be turned into the Lady E! Can’t wait to see yours and you’ll likely to be faster than me.
I made Lady E from silk garden, it’s perfect for knitting entralac’s. Even knitters think I used different wool for all the seperate rectangles. The staff at my LYS tried to keep it (my finished Lady E) when I was leavng the shop.
Lady E is a good project to use knitting backwards. Makes things go smoother if your not turning your work all the time
Hi. I saw that you were thingking of knitting the Sunrise Circle Jacket in Silk Garden but hesitated because the structure of that yarn. I totally agree, but have you thaught of knitting it in Kureyon instead? If so, here is a glimpse of my newly knitted Sunrise in Kureyon, I’m very pleased with it. (I apologize for the bad picture resolution.)http://s127.photobucket.com/albums/p135/knitzamore/Finished%20Objects/Sweaters%20and%20Cardies/
