Boy….am I excited. I am now knitting on my own projects. All the baby gifts are done and while there are gift items pending, I am focused on my own knitting for now. I pulled out a gray(color #155) top-downsweater jacket, from TOP DOWN Sweaters by Doreen L. Marquart and knit in Queensland’s Collection Kathmandu. I working on the sleeves and I will be wearing this sweater jacket soon. A design note here: it felt like the sleeves were oversized and with some group knitting counsel I am now adding shaping on the top of the sleeve…another design feature!

On Sunday my knitting (completed) wardrobe grew to include a pair of self-striping socks and a stole knit with MaggiKnits Linen…the pattern was inspired by Fiber Trends Bathing Beauties designed by Evelyn Clark. A while back I was inspired by this pattern as Kimberly was knitting one of the face clothes…..and I thought that pattern would be lovely in a stole. And it is! I remember having the wild idea that it would be fun to show Maggi Knits Linen in a different pattern at Stitches West last year…like Maggi really needs help! But the goal was to show a more conservative style for her yarn. I can hardly wait to see what this stole feels like after it is washed.

And now for those stoles on the needles…………..

The Washcloth gone Stole – In my enthusiasm to promote MaggiKnits yarns ….like she needs any help…but I did want to show her yarn in a more conservative view….I was inspired by the washcloth that Kimberly had just knit from the Fiber Trends pattern by Evelyn Clark, 215x, Bathing Beauties. So another stole was cast on. It is a very easy pattern with great results. My goal is to have it finished by June….OMG, I just realized it’s almost the middle of May. I must click those needles. Then I will move onto my last stole, which is already in progress.

…….Yarn and pattern available through Skein Lane Studio.

Point Edge Wrap – As I was sorting through my UFO’s recently I came upon this one that I started when I had the shop. In my excitement to show something else, this stole got put aside…and darn if I didn’t forget about it. Well, I do want to finish it….once again, simple lines with great results. The pattern, Point Edge Wrap, comes from Debbie Bliss’s book Cathay. The yarn that I am using is black Cathay – a blend of 50% cotton, 35% viscose microfibre, 15% silk.

……Black is no longer available but other colors and the book are available through Skein Lane Studio.
