|On the Needles at Tangled Yarns
Some gorgeous finished staff projects this week!
First off we have Lauren and her Soay Cardigan by Gudrun Johnston.
This was done in the Ruby Cascade 220 Superwash Sport, which she found was fabulous to knit with.
Lauren did apply some modifications to the pattern – shortened the body by a few inches to achieve the cropped look and raised the neckline. You can read further about her modifications on her project page.
The sweet pearl buttons need a little bit of help from some press studs to make sure the cardi stays closed.
Inspired by her Learn to Knit Socks classes, Derrin has been working on a pair of Bavarian Cable Socks by Wendy D. Johnson in some of my hand dyed Tight Twist Sock Yarn.
Kim has finished a stunning Vintage Missoni Inspired Blanket using our beautiful Cotton Fleece.
This was inspired by another Missoni hand towel she has and it looks stunning!
We have had an over whelming response to our original Missoni Inspired Chevron Blanket with projects popping up everywhere!
It seems that many knitters can’t get enough of our Missoni and have requested more!
Our Vintage Missoni Inspired Blanket this is a much more substantial blanket – perfect as an extra layer on the bed or to curl up under on the couch.
We will are busy working on the pattern plus a few other little surprises – keep an eye out on the newsletter for the release!
Eden is already in-store and I hope to have Acacia off the needles and ready to give you an idea of how the yarn knits up.
So much easier to finish both at the same time!!
