was doing some color mixing this morning - and always love the effect when dropping a bit of one hue of Daler Rowney Acrylic Ink into another!
pretty cool, huh?
I am addicted to the Knitmore Girls Podcast. They have a new segment called "In Stitches", in which they talk about the hand-knit garments they have worn during the past week. As I listened, I realized that I have been wearing a lot of my own hand-knits now that it is winter and a bit chilly. Here are two:
1.the Eleanor Cowl, designed by Audrey Knight, and knit with Sundara's yummy aran silky merino. It was a pure delight to knit, both the interesting pattern and the feel of the yarn as it ran through my fingers. Now it is a delight to toss on when I want to keep a chilly breeze off of my neck.
2. the Sid Cowl, designed by Melissa LaBarre. This is a nice, long loop cowl. I wear it both ways: hanging loosely draped around my neck, or doubled for extra warmth at my neck. This is a Quince pattern and I knit it using their Tern yarn, which is 75% wool and 25% silk......another pleasurable knit, both on the needles and around my neck!
Of course I also wear my hand-knit socks every day of the week!
