The first project was 400 yards min. and I did a shawl using for the first time yarn from Julie Spins MCN 430.
The pattern is Luciole by Anne Hanson
For the second project (min 600 yards), I made a blanket in delicious Malabrigo Rios. I used 4 skeins and the pattern is "Caravan Blanket" by designer Anne Hanson...yes she is my favorite designers of all times!!
I think we notice a trend .....blue is my favorite color!!!!
Last but not least, my final project (min 800 yards) is a cardigan!!! My first one!! Initially I was going to knit a beautiful scarf by ...Anne Hanson :) I decided to challenge myself instead!
The cardigan "Ballou" by Melissa Schaschwary is so easy to make, so straightforward and the pattern is so clear and well-written!! With 2 skeins of gorgeous tough love sock from SweetGeorgia Yarns. The colorway is "Glacier"..so beautiful!!!
And now it is time to switch gears because it is Plucktember!! I was first introduced to the Plucky Knitter through Cookie A sock club! This year, our first club shipment was a vibrant fuchsia "Goin'Steady" in the Plucky Feet base , 90% merino and 10% nylon. Too intimated, it sat in my stash until I decided to participate two weeks ago in the Plucktember event!!
The yarn wanted to a be a pair of fingerless gloves. Holding it double, I made "Cirrus Mitts" by....yes Anne Hanson"
very chic, n'est-ce-pas?
For the last remaining three days of September, I am hoping I can squeeze in a baby cap with the leftover skein.....to be continued :)
Edited to add the finished baby cap!
It is Crocus Cap by Anne Hanson
