Unraveled Wednesday: In Threes The Fourth
Joining Kat & the Unravelers today, sharing what I'm knitting and reading.
- My Ravelry Project Page: In Threes the Fourth
- Pattern: in threes:a baby cardigan by Kelly Herdrich
- Yarn: Malabrigo Washted, colorway 749 Selva Peruana
- Needles: US 8 (or possibly 7... if I'm going to forget to record something in Ravelry, it's gonna be the needle size)
- Start to Finish: August 29 - September 17, 2019
I found cute buttons at the same shop where I bought the yarn, my new LYS called Casting On -- and I sewed them on with the back side facing. I love the variations.
On the way home from dropping Kate at O'Hare last week, I stopped in Oshkosh at Oshkosh B'gosh and found some leggings to go with. I didn't intend to buy two pair, but GLITTERRRRR!!
I've been knitting other things, as well!
Tamarugo hasn't seen a ton of action in the past couple of weeks, but it keeps calling to me.
The yarn is in the most adorable "embroidered pot" that I picked up at Poppy Treffry in St. Ives when we were in Cornwall. It was the cutest shop!
Front and back of tag. :)
But that's not all...
Technically, that's a finished Sunrise Cowl, but, as you shall see, I have another on the needles and plan at least one (if not two) more.
I am LOVING the colors of the Malabrigo Rasta! The more yellow skein I've had for quite a while... in fact, it was an almost-finished hat for a couple of years. Finally, I decided that it just didn't want to be that. Combined with some other hanks that I've picked up here and there (because I find it almost irresistible), it's all getting knit up into cowls. Possibly Christmas presents.
And I am over the moon in love with my 10-INCH SIZE 15 DPNs!!
I'm still listening to The Unwomanly Face of War: An Oral History of Women in World War II by Svetlana Alexievich. And on my nightstand is The Bright Hour, which I've been enjoying quite a bit... that's not the right word. It's a good book.
That is one lucky baby to receive a beautiful sweater and glitter leggings! And I thank you profusely for the Sunrise Cowl. I bought two skeins of Rasta last year at Christmas time with the intention of knitting a hat for Justin's girlfriend. Turns out she isn't a big hat wearer, so I gave her wine instead. I looked at the Rasta during my stash cleanout and decided it was too pretty to give away; now I know what it will become! I might need a coordinating skein (or two) so I can knit multiple cowls!

Ooo! I too love how that Rasta looks knit up! Wow! That looks like it would go quick too on size 15's!! (But that sweater is just gorgeous! And, who does not want glitter leggings???)

The Rasta looks great in the cowls. I have knit that pattern, "In Threes" and think it is adorable. Perfect with leggings.

I thought I'd sworn off Rasta... but maybe not??!!
(I just finished packing for my trip - three pairs of leggings and not a single sparkle ... sigh)

The sweater is adorable and both pairs of leggings are perfect. I love that chunky yarn for the cowls!

The sweater is adorable and the glittery leggings are a perfect match -- I can see why you had to get them! The baby who gets these gifts is going to be very fashionable indeed.

The sweater is so perfect with GLITTER! What a great idea! The pot is SO cute. Sheepy things are always fun.

Oh I want glittery leggings now (but I'm betting I would look a tad bit foolish in them - lol). Love that darling sweater and it is perfect with leggings. And Rasta! How did I not know about that color yarn? I love it. So cheerful and bright and sunny and fun and it just makes me smile. Looking good Vicki!

Okay, Vicki . . . talk about SHINY OBJECTS!!!!!
(And that is the sweetest baby gift! Love the sweater/glitter-leggings combo!)

Cute sweater, I'm going to make one too. What size did you make?
