Happy Birthday Dad

 Churchmouse Yarns knit up their Boxy Lace Tee in Rowan’s Creative Linen.

We like the juxtaposition of a modern, boxy shape and feminine lace motifs knit on a slightly grand scale. With shaped shoulders, a gently dipping neckline, and options for two different lengths, this lacy top is so easy to pop on, and feels both comfy and really pretty.

We knit this adorable tee with Rowan Creative Linen, a versatile yarn that combines the cool, dry hand of linen with the soft loft of cotton. At a light worsted-weight, Creative Linen has a slightly rustic texture and nice heft. It drapes softly and provides proud stitch definition—perfect for a year ’round sweater like our Boxy Lace Tee.

You can purchase the pattern on Churchmouse’s website.

Four skeins are needed for the first two sizes and five skeins for the next two sizes.

With a crisp look but a soft feel, Creative Linen is a winner for spring and summer knits. Great stitch definition means that lace or texture patterns really shine in this yarn, which comes in a fresh colour palette of brights and tonals. With a mixture of 50% linen and 50% cotton, Creative Linen will wear and wash beautifully, making it an essential choice for warmer days.

I cut and pasted from Rowan’s website and it has thrown off my font. I thought about fixing it but it isn’t a day to be messing with the blog.

Mr. FedEx came this afternoon with two boxes from Biches & Buches. I will get the yarn online tomorrow.

We have two new colours of Le Cashmere & Lambswool. Dark Blue Turquoise and Grey Brown.

This is a brand new colour of Le Petit Lambswool - meet Soft Blue Black.

I’m early today because it’s dad’s birthday. He and Lucy are on the way over for dinner and presents. It’s not easy to buy for someone who turned 79. New shirt. New socks. Sweets.

What a comfy looking top. The yarn looks scrumptious, too.
