When in Norfolk, I found this pattern called the Speck Butterfly Shrug. Friend Kathy C. has knitted this type of sweater/wrap. Her's have come out just lovely. I thought it was up NEXT for me, but I suddenly have many patterns I'm interested in all at once.
Al has finished the baby blanket in true Knit time. (before the baby arrived) I have an image she sent me of the white border around it, but I can't load it onto this page. Sorry. I know you! You have wonderful imaginations…you know it is so pretty. Pretty pretty pretty!
My Mixed Berry socks (in Malabrigo Arroyo which is 100% washable merino wool), are moving right along. Color: 120 Lotus if you want to know.
Grace's finish : Striped Trap by Asars (a free Pattern on Ravelry), The ease of this pattern is calling me….calling me …..calling me.
I cannot use the yarn suggested due to alpaca / fibers up the nose and allergies……so I 'm in the substitution holding area. Ideas?
How do you successfully substitute yarns and get the right look?
I need help ladies….I often fail on this end and it can be a knit disaster…..
any suggestions? Helpful hints? Tried and true yarn tables somewhere?
