Sorrento

Wannietta brought in this great looking cardigan on Saturday. The cardigan looked good on the pattern and on Ravelry but it is so much better in person. I dressed it with jeans but it will also work for the office.

Pattern: Sorrento - we have copies in the store or you can purchase on Ravelry
Yarn: Erika Knight's Studio Linen
A jacket style edge to edge cardigan worked in reverse stocking / stockinette stitch and stocking / stockinette stitch with yarn used double and integral rib front selvedge bands, revere collar and patch pockets.
Wannietta commented that the linen was really nice to work with. She said it was soft and didn't feel like linen can.
85% is recycled rayon-linen fibre, sorted from selected wastage and regenerated using the eco-friendly hydrolysis method. Blended with 15% premium natural linen, these fibres are twisted and dyed by a specialist Italian spinner in Biella to produce a unique yarn with a dry hand feel and subtle sheen.

Cool to the touch, and with a delicate drape Studio Linen is the perfect yarn for summer. With a refined palette of eight essential colours that will work with everything you wear and a clear stitch definition, Studio Linen crafts beautiful garments both in knit and crochet.

Made in Italy
It's going to be a very busy week in the store with new yarns arriving every day. And there will be another new store sample this week as well. Blog posts have been started so I can share once the boxes are open. The items are ready to go live on the website. The only bad part will be finding the perfect spot for the yarn.

I'm a bit tired today. The Grey Cup was awesome. What a finish. And then the NFL game went into overtime as well. Tonight should be early to bed. Should be. But if I get the knitting groove going then it might not be.
