With the help of The Lace Reader on my Ipod, I'm making great progress on my Rowan Martha sweater, aka the Perfect Summer Cardigan (hopefully).
But I do have a splash of color going too.
Ishbel is providing a nice alternative.
The yarn is not completely smooth providing some nice texture and color variations. Unfortunately, I can't remember what the yarn is so I'll have to do some digging to figure it out.
I also played around with the turquoise ("Beachglass") Hazelknits sock yarn in an attempt to find a suitable scarf pattern. I tried Knitspot's Punch and Judy because I liked the strong geometric pattern as a match for the color...
but I'm not completely sure. The pattern actually calls for a DK weight so I think I would need to make this a repeat wider to really work... however, I really want a long skinny scarf so... shrug. I'll worry about that another day.
While sorting out my stash last week, I also came across this Tuscany Shawl from No Sheep for You that I started... geesh... a long time ago out of some Malabrigo Silky DK.
The color is not quite so blue as pictured here. It's called "greenish-grey", but I would describe it as a teal. Whatever you want to call it though, it feels wonderful and will definitely be back in action in a few months when the weather cools enough to knit with Malabrigo again. But for the next month at least, I'll be plopped in front of the a/c with cotton or something light.
