Miralda's Triangular Shawl

Montag, 17. Februar 2014 16:33:03

I finally finished a project made with yarn from ColourMart and it turned out quite well, even if I say so myself. I gave it to my stepdaughter for her birthday this past November.
I purchased 150 g cone of dark red 3/5 nm Cashmere and Silk yarn in October of 2012. I used about half that yarn. I forgot to weight the shawl before I mail4ed it to Elizabeth and she is getting ready to move, so I can't ask her to weight it for me right now. I will try to get the weight later and post it here, to give you a better idea of how much I actually used.

The pattern is in the book called: Knitted Lace of Estonia: Techniques, Patterns, and Traditions by Nancy Bush. The pattern is called "Miralda's Triangular Shawl". You will find it on page 103 of that book. The pattern calls for Fingering (# 1 Super Fine) yarn and the sample shawl shown in the book was made with Roving 100% Polworth 2-Ply Fingering Weight (100% Polworth wool; 820 yds. [750m]/150g); natural sheep's gray (taupe), 1 skein, using 1 size US 6 (4mm) circular needle, 32" (80cm) or longer. I tend to knit quite loose so I had to go down to a size US 2 needle to match the gauge: 10 Stitches X 16 Rows = 2" (5 cm) in stockinette stitch before blocking. I washed and blocked my gauge swatches as instructed by the author of the pattern. The pattern also give gauge for 2 of the charts but I did not swatch the lace patterns.

I am uploading a picture of Elizabeth wearing the shawl with the dress she had in mind when she asked for a shawl. I am not sure if I can upload more than one picture per post. At first glance it doesn't look like that is possible. So if you want a close up of the shawl let me know and I'll either email it to you or post it to this forum.

sweater from cash/merino 2/14.5 marrone

Dienstag, 11. Februar 2014 15:54:28

Hand knitted with 2 strands of cash/merino 2/14.5 marrone. takes 450 grams with enough left over to make socks!
actual size around chest - 110cm. The yarn is soft and warm to wear and keeps the definition of the pattern stitch. Washes very well and keeps its shape even in a machine wool wash setting. My son loves it.

Here's the 28/2 as weft. Jaggerspun Zephyr "Vanilla" warp. A *very* fine combination!

Weaving with Colourmart yarn

Freitag, 07. Februar 2014 14:53:13

I thought there might be a weaver out there who'd be interested in seeing Colourmart yarn woven rather than knitted or crochet'd. I finished one scarf in Baby Pink 36/3 Laceweight Cashmere as weft, with Jaggerspun Zephyr warp. The recipient, my sister-in-law, nearly swooned. I'm now using the same warp to weave scarf #2 (different treadling) with 28/2 (color Sesa, Cashmere #20477) as weft - again, gorgeous. The pink required a doubled weft - it was too light in weight and color for the draft to show - but I'm using the "tan" as singles. Love this stuff!

I got a sample of this to swatch up. ( I didn't want to commit to a Kone until I found out what it was like!) Wow... Super nice and really soft! (And I have a Kone heading my way

My swatch notes and other details are on the link below. (The nicest boucle to knit up, ever!)

The more I knit up this yarn, the more I like it! I think that I prefer it knit at a larger gauge but it's still nice at a normal gauge.

My swatch experiment is here:

I have a scarf in progress here: (Blue Lagoon)

And an Olympic project planned here: (Incubus)

I have mixed 4 plies of 2/30 cashmere/wool coffee with a kidsilk from my stash. This is the result. Extremely soft and not too thick. Maybe this will be transformed in a nice pullover

8/44nm Cashmere 4ply

Mittwoch, 22. Januar 2014 15:35:02

Swatched this one as well! There are some bias issues with this yarn but it's worth the effort to find a pattern that works for it!!

The yarn itself is gorgeous and silky! I knit up a cowl with it, Navajo Plied, and it's beautiful and has a ton of drape! Seriously, you'd think it had a good portion of silk in it but nope, just cashmere

My swatches are here:

My cowl is here:

And the pattern for the cowl is here: (My design, btw! I haven't found the right buttons for it yet but I will update the photo here when I do.)

The Ties That Bind Cowl in Piuma.

Dienstag, 07. Januar 2014 17:12:56

Another design of mine done in Bright Yellow Piuma. (Sorry about the picture but I couldn't for the life of me capture the colour!??) I've also written the pattern for a more DK to worsted weight as well so almost any weight yarn, light aran to DK will work for this.

My project page is here for the Piuma.

And here for the 8/28nm cashmere DK:

Eta: I changed the photo because this one, I got lucky with, actually captures all of the colours! Even the Piuma
All are CM yarns of course. (And seem to be multiplying like rabbits!)

4/13nm Cashmere DK Cowl

Dienstag, 07. Januar 2014 16:55:22

This yarn is just yummy! It knits up more like a fingering weight and isn't very soft till it's been washed a few times but the after effect is beautiful and oh so soft!

Here you'll find more details of the cowl. (Pattern coming soon )

For more yarny details, please check out the post below and follow the link.

Swatching again!

This one is a little "meh" off the cone but softens very nicely after a few washes!

Details are on the link below.

The photo shows 2 swatches. The top one is prewashed yarn knit up and washed again and the second, lower swatch, is knit straight off the cone. I might take the time to prewash this one as it's much nicer to knit with and fewer issues with skewed stitches. All in all, it's a lovely yarn

ETA: I just machine washed these 2 swatches, just to see how the swatches would hold up to that abuse, with a load of jackets and hoodies and they came out SOOOOO SOFT! Piuma soft!
