Different + Twisty
- Project: Another One Different -- Different Lines by Veera Välimäki
- Yarn: Garnstudio DROPS Alpaca, (2) skeins, green
- Yarn: Garnstudio DROPS Kid-silk, (1.25) skeins, purple
- Needle: US 6 (straights)
- Start to Finish: September 10 - October 1, 2012
I believe this is the first of Veera's striped patterns that I've knit exactly as written. Oh, my, it is so cozy and soft. It's quite substantial and I haven't even blocked it yet. The yarn was a gift from Dixie for helping her out at Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival last month.
Straight into rotation (I've been carrying it with me everyday), I'm sure this one will see plenty of wear-time this winter.

Speaking of Dixie, she has featured my Make.Do Realize Sport yarn in her latest Yellow Dog Knitting Video Workshop for a one-skein project called Twisty Swirl -- a free pattern! It's perfect for fall and winter knitting, and, yes, for holiday knitting.
What!? You know the they're coming!!
Knit in the round -- with an intentional twist -- and featuring an easily memorized lace pattern, Twisty Swirl is a quick knit resulting in a warm and cozy cowl.
It's just the kick in the butt I needed to get some yarn photographed and uploaded, which I did over the weekend. I dropped some parcels off at the P.O. this morning (even though they probably won't go anywhere until tomorrow), but there are still a few one-of-a-kind hanks available. I will continually update these listings (and others), and more of this yarn base is on the way!
I love the color combo of your Different Lines - what a great pop! And the photos are beautiful. Great cowl pattern, too, and nice marketing for your yarn. woot!

Purple and green, one of my fave combos! It's so beautiful. I have been admiring it on your Flickr photo stream. :-)

Beautiful Different Lines and yarn too.
I already saved the pattern but I must be good and finish things that I have on my needles, yes I must! :)

Like the purple and green. The cowl is very lovely, too.
