Pressed Flowers

This is the Easy Eyelet Scarf knit with tosh merino light and Shibui Silk Cloud. I originally took pictures on the mannequin but it looks so much better on Lynn.

You can purchase the pattern and download the free addendum on Churchmouse’s website.

Lynn said that the scarf is super soft. I had to make sure that she took it off before going home. 

In possibly the simplest lace pattern that exists (it’s a one-row repeat!), we’ve reinterpreted this wrap in so many yarns over the years. With the option to seam it into an easy poncho for a breezy, multi-season layer, it’s quick to knit—it’s got more holes than yarn!

We’ve knit this Easy Eyelet Wrap in a combination of Shibui Silk Cloud and Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. Perfectly paired with the mohair fuzz of lace-weight Silk CloudTosh Merino Light’s tonal washes of complementary, hand-dyed color gain a glowing halo. Together, these yarns have the soft, lightweight warmth we love season after season!

We’ve resized our Easy Eyelet Wrap with a free adaptation to make sure we took full advantage of both Tosh Merino Light and Silk Cloud’s yardage. We kept the scarf narrow to gain a lavish length! And with the extra yardage of Tosh Merino Light, we added an abundance of fringe.

Diana finished our store sample of the Temperance Shawl. I took quick pictures before I left the store yesterday.

The shawl is big and beautiful.

Beth’s scarf is growing. She really likes knitting with Dyed in the Wool. Maybe too much. 

My secret project. Pressed Flowers - I’ll show coloured pictures on April 9. The first repeat of the pattern is a bit fiddly but after that it becomes intuitive.

Dad had his first vaccination yesterday and has had no complaints so far. He said the process was quick and easy. His next shot should be in July. Beth and I are patiently waiting for ours.
