My current work in progress:

Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry, knit from Miss Babs  Kaweah in the Parchment, Old Gold, Petrified Forest, and Espresso colorways, using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.

Bogus Bohus

Here’s something I’ve been working on for a little while:

WIP022116 240x153 Bogus Bohus

This is a cowl, my own design, based on the lovely patterns of Bohus knitting. I’m using all Rowan yarns, a mixture of fingering weight and laceweight yarns (held together to make a fingering weight) — the fibers are a mixture of wool, mohair, silk, alpaca, and cashmere.

It’s knitting up into a lovely light soft cowl that will be very warm and cozy to wear! The pattern will be available once completed and tested.

Meanwhile, Loki is enjoying a game of hide and seek.

  6. Can you tell me, when you use 2 strands of a lighter weight yarn to try to equal a heavier one, do you twist them together to try to duplicate a plied yarn or just carry them parallel? I find if I just carry them together they knit up heavier than if they were twisted to mimic a plied yarn. Thanks.

  7. Nice!!!

  8. That’s beautiful! I’ve just “discovered” Bohus this past year, I really wish there was more literature out there on it. Thanks for making this. 🙂

  9. Gorgeous! Just absolutely positively gorgeous. Be still my beating heart!

  10. Lovely work, as always.
