Show and Tell
|Dawning in the Sunshine, Marcy's|
standing in her front yard near her
meadow grass that she talked about.
Marcy shared her gorgeous "Reflected Yoth Lines" cardigan by Suvi Simola. She's using Yoth Yarns Big sister in the Kale, Honeydew Melon and Mandarin colors. So far, her only mod is knitting a straight hemline instead of the asymmetrical one called for in the pattern, Reflected Lines. She's loving working with the yarn and can't wait to wear this beautiful cardi.
Kim shared her finished "Stardust Socks," that she knit on magic loop, 2 at a time, top down and with a true after thought heel. She knit the body of the socks with Lolo Did It yarn in the Pretty Young Thing color on the everyday sock base and used Greenwood Fiber Works yarn in the natural color way on their stardust base for the cuffs, heels and toes.

The "Summer Insouciant," is still on Kim's needles. Julie Hoover designed the Insouciant pullover/tunic and it's a great summer garment. She's using Juniper Moon Farm Zooey DK yarn in the Ketch and White colors.
Kim is continuing to work on her "Jingle Bell Socks," She bought some heathered Christmas colored fiber at Stitches West this year from Greenwood Fiberworks and spun it up and is knitting these socks with contrasting cuffs, heels and toes.
After approximately 17,000 hours of perusing Ravelry and her stash, Kim finally decided to cast on the Drachenfels shawl by Melanie Berg. She's had her eye on this beauty for several years and thought it would be a great way to showcase some of her hand spun yarn. She is also using Becoming Art yarn on the Cielo fingering base (color way unknown,) and Handwerks yarn on their Silky Sock base in the Embers color. Kim's hand spun is from Three Water's Farm fiber in the Emerald Sea color way.
