Autumn Dance

This is Svetlana Gordon's Double Jacquard Autumn Dance (pattern purchased on Ravelry). It is knit with Malabrigo Sock and Mechita. If I saw someone walking down the street wearing this scarf I would stop them to comment on it. It is amazing!!
Double Jacquard is a technique that produces two color designs with no floats on the back. It is a process of knitting a fabric that has the two sides stocking knit. One side is predominantly color A, the other side is predominantly color B.

Beth knit the Cara Cowl and loved making it. The yarn is Independence from Spincycle Yarns.
We are very pleased to introduce Independence, a completely domestic yarn! The sheep are raised in the midwestern US; the fiber is dyed and milled on the west coast of Washington. We support our local economy; that's how we got our start as a handspinnery and it's where our hearts lie. 
This yarn is a balanced, aran weight single, with the thick-and-thin texture of a handspun yarn. We kettle dye each batch with care and intention, and our meticulous milling ensures that our yarn maintains the color artistry of our original handspun product. Unique, luxe, and handmade sustainably in the USA.

We received two new colours today. She was very excited but asked me to leave her skeins in the store. If I bring them home then she is going to want to start and she has to finish the cowl she's currently working on. I'm all for working on more than one project at a time, however I want the Bamboo Bloom cowl for the store so I'm holding the new yarn hostage for now. :)

It's time for Survivor and The Great Canadian Baking Show. And some knitting. I have about 50 rows to go on the front of Veronika. It should be finished by the weekend.
