Yarn Along – 4/22/15
Laura’s Blog Entry
I am between books at the moment, but I have a new knitting project!
I am starting Another Door Opens, a shawl pattern by Sara Bauer. She produces the Yarns at Yin Hoo podcast, which I greatly enjoy. She features knitting, some homesteading, cooking, restoration of her reproduction Chinese tea house home, with a touch of poetry and literature thrown in. Sara has a lovely and gentle style to her presentation and has the heart of a true teacher.
I chose to do a solid version of the shawl with a variegated border. I love the different textures of the sections in the shawl. They really shine in a solid.
Yarn is Manos del Uruguay Fino in color 404, Watered Silk. I will be using Noro Silk Garden Sock in color 279 for the border. I CANNOT WAIT to dip into that skein, I can tell you that.
Sometime you need something fresh on the needles. This is for a gift way later in the year. I can take my time, which is a good thing because I haven’t knit anything like this in a long time and it is taking all my concentration to count and to yarn over and to slip stitch markers. I am loving it!
