Metropolitan Knits review and my crush on the Washington Square Cardi?) Well the first thing that jumped out at me was Liathite, a perfectly functional hoodie with shaping which is what I need in a sweater. It has a bit of negative ease designed into the garment so that it is fitted.... over time I have learned this is a necessity for me to end up with a sweater I love.
Gabbro.... LOVE. I definitely don't have time to knit a sweater at this gauge, but if I did this would be in my queue!!!!
Serpentinite! Carol came up with an ingenious way of making an integrated beaded loop with beads that are slipped in between stitches. The loop helps keep the scarf in place around your neck AND adds a little bling. You know I like that : )!
check it out and support an independent knitwear designer! (Also Carol is really fun to hang out with late night at TNNA... just sayin')
So Carol, being the sweetie she is, has offered a pdf copy of Among Stones to one of you! All you have to do is leave a comment to be entered to win! Comments will be open through Monday September9th. I'll choose a winner on the 10th when I land home from my 2013 PA Knitting Tour : )!
Thanks for asking me to be a part of the tour Carol!
