Sheltered



Among other large projects I am working on behind the scenes here, I have recently been finishing up a new sweater design out of the very lovely Brooklyn Tweed Shelter yarn in the Hayloft colorway.

I have run into a few snags with this yarn that have made for a few interesting and funny stories that I will be sure to share on my upcoming podcast episode for this month.

Despite all of that however, I have to say.. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this yarn. 
Its rugged, and beautiful, and just feels... good to knit with. 

This cardigan has some very special little details that I am not ready to fully reveal just yet, so I will leave you with this little collection of annoyingly vague, close-up shots from today. :) 

Because I am mean like that.



I'm on the home stretch.
This sweater just needs some final finishing touches. 
Thank goodness I have my little "helper" to lend a hand. :)



Oh.. and please do disregard the pile of laundry lurking in the background. :)

I have three skeins of Shelter that I have yet to cast on. They probably aren't enough for your new design but I'm looking forward to seeing how you knit with it.

Didn't notice the laundry! Too captivated by the color and details of your new design and your *absolutely adorable* little guy. So glad the podcasts are back!

Little Man (22 months) saw your cutie and said, "baby?" and kept trying to see my screen better.

Well, I certainly am intrigued ... both with the design and with the yarn, which I haven't tried yet. Can't wait to see the full view!

And that helper of yours is SOOOOO beautiful. What a gorgeous, big smile! :)

I am eagerly looking forward to this new design. My first thought when I saw your son was how he resembles your daughter somehow.

I've just finished a Cedar Leaves Shawlette and I've popped some pictures on my blog. It looks splendid with the autumn sun shining through. Madelinetosh Filigree colourway really did the job.

Your little helper is adorable, and what a great smile.

That always helps to have someone on hand who has the best attitude.
