Stitch By Stitch



While I am anxiously awaiting the shipment of Botanical Knits books to arrive from the printery, I have been busy working away on a new design project. This time a hooded sweater-coat out of the very warm 
Felted Tweed Aran yarn by Rowan.

This colorway is called Pebble and it is beautiful in its simplicity.
I love the halo of the alpaca content and the little flecks of blue. 



This particular project is taking awhile, but I am plugging away at it stitch by stitch.


I am especially excited about these textured sections featuring a cabled stitch pattern of my own design.

That's a very pretty yarn. I love cables so I can't wait to see what you've created.
