A visit from Lynn

Lynn needed sock yarn so she stopped by the store this morning. She brought some projects to show off.
Here is the Rock It Tee she is knitting with Pollock from Juniper Moon. This is the same pattern that I am making using a fingering weight yarn and a lace weight mohair. Lynn's stitches have a tighter look which isn't a bad thing. I really like the look and feel of her sweater. Mine definitely needs something underneath but Lynn’s won’t be see through.
Lynn left her sunglasses in the car so she is squinting. She wasn't mad.

This easy lace pattern runs from the underarm to the bottom of the sweater on both sides. Something interesting instead of side seams.

She had a couple of finished projects to show off as well. These are both from Joji - perfect for the KAL.
Lynn made me a nice list of the pattern name and the yarn she used. No, I can’t find it so I’m doing some research.

This is the Venezia Shawl. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or on Joji’s website. Lynn used one skein of Dream in Color Smooshy Cashmere in the colour Below Horizon.

These are some of my favorite projects to make. Special, unique, and perfect for using treasured skeins and making gifts.  
Venezia is a precious, delicate shawlette, perfect for any single skein of fingering weight yarn. Worked from tip to tip, with a reversible lace pattern and a diamond shape.  
It is framed by a gorgeous reversible diamond lace motif, and the main body of the shawl is worked in ribbing.
Lynn said that she enjoyed the pattern and wants to make it again in a semi solid yarn.
This is called Paris in Berlin (pattern purchased on Ravelry) knit with one skein of LITLG Singles in the colour Harbour.
I wanted to design a bohemian cowl that looks like a shawl, but is much easier to wear and style. 

I really like this one. Sometimes a shawl falls off your shoulders - this will always stay in place.

In my mind an email newsletter was going out tomorrow. That isn’t going to happen. You will see one in your inbox on Monday morning.

Now off to knit for a bit before bed.
