I believe it is the one just like the Italian dark Plums. The one we can find in most grocery stores in the past view weeks.
So here are a view skeins dyed and drying up in the last week of summer. Truly love how beautiful they look in the sunshine
After we had a nice view days doing things around the house over the Labour Day Weekend…part of hurricane Harvey must have made its way up to us …with rain and Thunder. So the grounds are all wet this Tuesday Morning. A perfect day to doing some more cleaning I thought and getting ready for the colder season again.
So as I am waiting for the water to drain from Hot Tub ….I noticed a cluster of beautiful Mushrooms had grown on our front walk way…so delicate and pretty.
See how only 20 minutes of lighting makes a difference in the picture ….and one hour later they are all drying up and shriveled up looking…..I guess by noon they are gone again…
So two hours have past since I started this post ….and you should see how black the sky is right now…..lol I am getting soaked by rain and hail….
This Origami Shrug by Melissa Wehrle is so soft and light. It has been on my mind for way to long to knit this shrug up. Since I have the book now for several years I thought it really is time to start knit it up too…
Can you tell I am Soooo loving it .
I used 5 skeins of my absolute favourite yarn called Louet MerLin Sport Weight a total of 1142 meters where knit up with needle US 6 -4.0mm in the Aqua colour. So sad though this yarn is now discontinued ;-(((
If I would knit this Origami Shrug again I would be to use my KnitswissYarns in sport weight. Really think it would be stunning too.
Totally in love with this Origami Shrug.
When it came to sewing the back together I put the stitches on two separate needles and used the Kitchener this way…no one will see a seam!
(Now if you are going to knit this one up, look at the pattern errata there is a correction that is important to know! )
has been designed to honour this event. Although I have seen the Maple Leaf Tulip in pictures only at the time of me disining this cowl. I too was inspired to reflect it in my knitting and design….with planting in the fall of 2016, 50 of the Maple Leaf Tulip bulbs.
So after I had a look though my already existing yarn stash I found several smaller balls of fingering weight of my own KnitswissYarns. My colours are perfect for this tulip colours and concept. I am excited to tell you the pattern was published in “A Needle Pulling Thread” Summer edition 2017
