Evening Shadow

It's Monday. It's cold. Here is something to cheer you up. Free patterns.
What a beautiful cabled jacket from Debbie Bliss.

And another pattern from Debbie knit in Noro Kureyon.

A new yarn has arrived from Mrs. Crosby - this is what she has to say about it.
One of the great joys of constant travel is discovery; the other is sharing what you discover with those at home.
 
I am simply over the moon to announce the first in what I intend to be an ongoing series of such discoveries: a limited edition of a fascinating yarn, available nowhere else and never to be repeated.
 
May I present, please: Ombra della Sera. Evening Shadow.
 
This intriguing, luxurious chain-ply was milled in Prato, Italy from 90% cashmere and 10% nylon for a dashing combination of softness and durability. On needles US 6-7 (4-5mm) it knits at a gauge of approximately 4.5-5 stitches to the inch. The put-up is 50 grams (approximately 110 yards) per hank.
The colours we received
-Fiore
-Hollywood cerise

-Zaffiro

-Mandarino
-Red king radish

-Roasted chestnut
-Wild huckleberry
 


I am a few rows from finishing a cowl (Via Toscana Collar) in this amazing yarn. It is super soft and is a dream to knit with.

It was painting day at the store today. Our railings are shiny black and we have a purple door. 

It's sign off time - I need to get myself in the proper mind set for the baseball game tonight. Go Jays Go!!
