Spring cleaning

While working on spinning the rest of the fiber for my current sweater project, I’m also attempting to clear out a back log of small projects lurking around every corner of my small house. I honestly try not to let projects pile up, but it always seems so easy to justify buying a few skeins of yarn for small projects.

My latest small project is the Flared Lace Smoke Ring from Heart Strings Fiber Arts, which is being knit out of  Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold  (65% wool and 35% silk).  It’s a stand in for the Rainbow Roving that I spun last year but is not nearly as nice;  Silky Wool just isn’t as soft and springy.  With only 4 ounces of Rainbow Roving,  I’m still looking for a perfect compliment yarn and/or pattern.

  1. Yeah, I really like it. I’m not sure if it has a name.
    The 2004 Spring/Summer issue of Vogue Knitting had a sweater knit with a very similar version of this stitch. It’s a lovely sweater but not quite my style.
