Ruby Leaves



I just recently had this lovely set of pattern samples knit up for me by one of my fabulous test/sample knitters, Anne. This is my Autumn Vines Beret and Oak Grove mitts worked up in the lovely Road to China Light yarn in the Ruby colorway by The Fibre Company. I've used this yarn before but I especially I love the elegant look it gives to these designs in particular. The slight fuzzy texture and sheen is so luxurious!



Although the stitch pattern is different, I've always felt that this hat and mitt pattern would serve as an excellent coordinating set, especially knit up in the same colorway like this.


I often have samples knit up for trunk shows and to put on display in different venues... but this particular set.. I wish I could keep. It's so pretty!

So good to hear from you again - i've missed you! Hope you're having fun with that new son of yours! Might you be attending Stitches West this year again?

I was happy to see your blog pop up! The knits are beautiful especially in that yarn.

So funny you should post this! I'm actually working on this beret right now. I ran into a snag on row 17 though and have to rip back to figure out what I did wrong. My plan was to knit the oak leaves mitts to go with it. I found an old merino alpaca blend in the bottom of my stash in a gorgeous purpley blue colorway so I think it will be a very nice set.
