Changes...

Welcome to my new blog site!

Well...Its been a long time between posts.  Since September Skein has grown into a full time business, which I am over the moon about.  My lovely small business fills most of my waking hours...I have never been busier or happier.  Since Skein has brought about many changes in my life, a new career and new lifestyle to name but a few, I decided that my blog needed a change as well... and here it is :)

So...what have I been knitting? 


Pattern: Atelier by Heidi Kirrmaier (Ravelry link)
Yarn: Skein, Merino/Silk Sport - Colourway Savannah

This was meant to be a test knit for Heidi, but alas things got busy and I just couldn't finish by the submission date.  I did manage to complete this project in just under 2 months, which is not bad considering I didn't work on it every day.

 

There are two versions of this pattern, I chose to knit the I-Cord version because I like the neat look of I-Cord edging.  The cardigan construction is surprisingly unique given that the cardigan looks simple in design.

 


I really like the pocket and cuff matching garter stitch detail ...

 
 ....as well as the Garter Stitch waist band, which pulls the fabric in to form a nice waist.  

Love, love, love!

Do you alternate skeins (hehehe) when you knit?

It's a big leap to have a drastic change in career but I am sure you won't look back! The fact that you love what you are doing is evident in the beautiful Skein yarns you produce. The colourways are inspiring!

I am glad you are back in 'blogland'. I am sure many people will enjoy following your adventures with Skein.
