The weather was beautiful this long weekend – mild and sunny! On Saturday we took a walk down at Woodbine Beach, where they were setting up for Winter Stations.
I’m sure winter weather will be back with a vengeance soon, but for now I’m enjoying the sunshine! I have a bunch of new knitting patterns out for spring, too.
With Swans Island, two light-as-air sweaters knit with their beautiful lace weight merino silk.
Ashland is a simple boxy pullover with a slipped-stitch mock cable on the sleeves. The body is knit in the round to the underarm then split for the front and back; the sleeves are worked in the round as well. Special thanks to Denny for knitting the sample!
Pembroke is a seamed cardigan with a slightly A-line shape and twisted rib details, including this back neck triangle!
With Louet I have three tops worked in their classic Euroflax linen.
Delphinium is a sleeveless top with garter stitch gussets for a nicely swingy shape. Worked seamlessly in the round.
Violeta features a bias-knit asymmetrical hem and longer length. Another knit-by-Denny sample ;)
Cardo is my favourite of these three designs, I think! Worked in 2 identical pieces from side to side – you cast on for half a sleeve, work across the body, then the second sleeve. The body is seamed along the shoulders, sleeves and body sides. The centre front and back feature a set of tucks created with short rows.
What’s in your spring knitting queue?
