Work continues on the back of the Twisty Aran. See?
As I’ve mentioned, it is slow going due to all the twisted stitches and many many cables, but is a lot of fun to knit. I love the yarn: Rowan Calmer. It’s got a lot of stretch and great stitch definition so it really works well for a complex twisty design.
Speaking of yarn . . .
Check this out:
This is some gorgeous stuff! It’s a cashmere/merino/silk blend laceweight called Nona from Spirit Trail Fiberworks. You can browse the colorways here. It is 640 yards per 4 ounces, so it is on the heavier side of laceweights. These have become my favorites to work with and I doodled up a lace cowl design earlier this month that I think will work beautifully with this yarn.
Early last month Lucy discovered the Floppycats website and blog and we posted about it here. This month she has another recommendation: Cat Scratchings, a new blog on the Animal Planet website. It’s a new addition to the site and what we have seen so far we love. Lucy gives it two paws up!
