Project: Yar

Pattern: Starboard

Designer: Susan Mills

Available: $6 on Ravelry, in CE #9168 (Harbor) for $10

Yarn: CEY Seedling Handpaint in #4567

“Starboard” is a quick and fun knit, using just two hanks of soft and colorful Seedling Handpaint.  I was asked to make a store sample for the shop, and I was pleased to do so!  The cast-on edge of 135 elongated picots was … sorry to say … a bit tedious.  But, I knew that once the edge was done, the rest would be quickly completed.  I played a board game with friends while making the picots, and two hours later, I was at work on the short-row ribbed body.  I finished the next day.

Thanks to my model Eli for showing off Yar for me! 🙂

CO Monday: Soft Purple Kitty Capelet

It’s been almost two weeks since I cast on a new project! I’m not sick, I’m not deranged–I’m just trying to whittle down my WIP count. I actually have finished a bunch of things — Eli’s orange hoodie, the knit Jasper, and the Echo Flower shawl.  Yay!

My new project is another sample for the Hub Mills store: a Noelle Capelet in the called-for yarn, Rowan Lima.  This yarn is heavenly, and I literally begged for the opportunity to knit a sample with it.  Lucky me, I got the thumbs up!  I’ve got the ribbed neckline done — the rest in just raglan increases and stockinette in-the-round. Here’s my color:
