Just popping in for a very quick update. Any knitting lately has been of the dish cloth variety and I can't imagine that even die-hard knitters are really that interested in yet another pink variegated Grandma's Dishcloth. Even I am bored with them. But they sell, so what's a girl to do? I am also looking for a local person who makes soaps to pair up with the cloths at the craft fair in April. I've found a couple through Etsy and am looking to seeing/smelling the options!
Shetland Triangle is off the needles!
I lovelovelove this pattern and can easily see myself making it again in a variety of weights.
The color is somewhere between the values in the photos. I'm quite happy with how it all came out.
Pattern: Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark from Wrap Style by Interweave Press.
Yarn: Rowan Magpie in the Mexico colorway. Sadly, this lovely yarn has been discontinued. It is the same yarn that I used to make Twist.
Needles: KnitPicks Options Size 9
Started: February 2008
Finished: February 2008
I know it is the fir cone pattern, but when I looke at it all I see are candleflames which marry up beautifully with the rich burnt orange color of the wool. It is cozy and airy, lacy but substantial all at the same time.
Now, I just need to know how to wear it without looking like I'm 80 years old!
