Ash

Ash_farther_away

In looking at the past few entries, I realized that I’ve shown y’all what I’d LIKE to work on, what I SHOULD work on and what I’m NOT working on, 74packagelargebut no actual footage of what I AM working on.  Situation rectified.

My present project is Ash from Rowan #36 (pattern #2).  Instead of using Rowan Kidsilk Haze, I’m using the much more "Sil" priced Madil Kid Seta.  This yarn has been a great sub so far, it’s the same gauge and yardage as the Ash_close_upRowan but only costs about 2/3 as much.  Kid Seta is also super-duper soft, it’d have to be since I’m a founding member of the "Me NO Likey Mohair" advisory panel, plus it’s blended with silk and who doesn’t like silk?

Isn’t that a pretty little lacy number?  I’m thinking of making so sort of fun summery skirt/top combo to wear with this.  I also think it’ll be nice over a baby tee worn with jeans when the weather finally turns and stays warmer.  Confession:  when I knit this up I start humming that "Pretty in Pink" song from the Psychedelic Furs circa 1984.  What?  You want to sing along…here’s your spot.

  1. How darling that lace pattern looks! Thanks for the “pretty in pink” song, it’ll be rattling around my head for days now.
    I saw you walking down Kentucky street next to Knitterly the other day and I almost called out to say hi, but then I figured you’d think I was a blog “stalker”. So anhyow… hi!
