Dropping Stitches

Beth has been busy knitting while being at home with Roko. She found a pattern on Ravelry for the Drop Stitch Cowl. Thick yarn. Big needles. Knit in an evening. Perfect for Beth.
Pattern: Drop Stitch Cowl  - free on Ravelry
Needles: 10mm 60cm circular
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Chunky Hand Dyed - 1 skein for a cowl

So perfect that she made two.
If the hand dyed colours are too much for you, we have the yarn in solid colours as well.

Classic Elite has a new book coming out soon called Portraits. I really, really like this jacket and have ordered the yarn for myself.
Gabrielle knit in Majestic Tweed
This oversized cardigan, with elongated front shaping, is worked side to side with a provisional cast on at center back.
How did Majestic Tweed get its name? Deep colors accented with tweedy flecks, a gorgeous fiber blend of wool, angora, silk and nylon, and a relaxed ply come together to create soft, rich fabrics with a subtle angora halo.
The yarn is 40% wool, 20% silk, 20% angora and 20% nylon.
If you would like to join me in knitting the jacket, here is a link to the shades on Classic Elite's website. I'm going to knit in 7238 Espresso. It takes a week to two weeks to get the yarn in.

Now it's time to catch up on TV that I missed while I was away last week. There wasn't time to watch in Vegas :)
