Start of spring preview

Anne has been busy knitting with Rowan. Here are four projects that she has finished since fall. Very impressive. 

This is Kaffe’s Paint Daubs from his Felted Tweed book that came out this past fall. The pattern was for a blanket but Anne cut down the number of stitches to make it a shawl. 

The next three patterns are from Rowan Magazine #68.
This is Fiction knit in Brushed Fleece. Anne says that is a great jacket to wear around the house for a layer of warmth or as a bed jacket when reading at night.
Kincardine is knit in Felted Tweed. There is embroidery around the neck that Anne enjoyed doing.
Knit from the top down in Felted Tweed, this sleeved capelet features pretty feminine detailing and embroidery around the neckline. A rolled hem finishes the ribbed edges.

The last project is Marram. It is a gorgeous blanket designed in Creative Linen and Brushed Fleece. 

Thank you Anne for sharing! Your garments are gorgeous. You can follow Anne’s knitting adventures on her YouTube channel.
