Super Simple Summer Sweater

What a beautiful day!! Lynn and I took some pictures outside. Lynn wanted to stay outside longer but I told her to get back inside and work. LOL! We stayed outside for a while talking.

The first is the Impressionist Shawl (pattern purchased on Ravelry) knit with 2 balls of Noro Tsubame. Here is a link to the kits that we have put together.

This is Adrienne’s shawl and I love the colours! She used colours 8 & 9.

This was such a fun knit- the colours were spectacular, and the finished project is so warm and cozy. I have kept it on the back of my couch all winter and wrap myself up in it whenever I can :)

Named for the barn swallow that migrates to Japan during cherry blossom season, this is a classic worsted-weight silk/wool blend. Each oversized skein contains 656 yards making it ideal for an endless variety of one-skein projects!

We should have more stock coming next week. 

The second shawl was Pressed Flowers (pattern purchased on Ravelry). We used Malabrigo Rios - Gris and Magenta - 3 skeins of each. Diana knit this for the store on 4.5mm needles.

As I was leaving the store I snapped two quick pictures of combinations for the shawl

Both pictures are Ivory. Above is Cowboy and below is Tranquillo. Natural is another great choice for the background. I could have been taking pictures for hours because there are so many possibilities. Dark background with light flowers. Light background with dark flowers. Reverse the colours for the border....

Joji Locatelli’s Super Simple Summer Sweater is back in the top 20 on Ravelry. This is a great pattern. 

This is a very basic sweater, with a deep circular yoke, a boxy fit and fresh looking stripes. Worked in worsted weight yarn, seamlessly from the top-down.

Knitters have used Rios, Rowan Cotton Cashmere and Rowan Creative Linen to knit it.
