Kiri shawl in blue laceweight cashmere

Jeudi 05 Avril 2007 09:14:38

Knitted with two strands of 2/28 100% cashmere using the Kiri shawl pattern from www.alltangledup.com, I modified the cast off edging by using the picot cast off from the sun ray shawl from elann.com. Weight about 106 gms before washing, 5mm circular needle. Produced a wonderfully soft, warm result.

Shawl from 6/28 in "Grouse Moor"

Mercredi 04 Avril 2007 12:27:45

I made Hyrna Herborgar (from the Icelandic Shawls book, translated) in the 6/28, and love, love, love it! The yarn was perfect for the look I wanted - heavier for cuddly warmth, but still lacy. The shawl took one and a bit partial cones. Once it was off the needles and blocked I immediately had to get started on another Colour Mart project - with lace weight cashmerino in a bright red. Yummy. When photos happen, I'll add them.

Shetland Garden Faroese Shawl in 2/28 silk, ecru, doubled

Lundi 02 Avril 2007 21:52:40

This is another great pattern by Sivia Harding. Used Knitpicks Options needles size 5. The yarn, now shawl, is beautiful, and there is quite a lot left over. Knitting the yarn doubled can be a bit tricky as it's easy to split, but not horrible. I'd do it again. I handwashed it in Synthrapol prior to blocking. It didn't bloom much, but is just lovely.

Martin Storey cardigan.

Samedi 31 Mars 2007 13:06:04

This is an adaptation of a Martin Storey
design from Jaeger JB24. It was knitted on 4mm
needles, using 3 strands of 2/28 cashmere, colour
Amoroso. The gauge was 22 sts and 36 rows to 10 cm.
I knitted this in a size 42/44 and its weight,
including the buttons and beads was 396g. Sorry, I
forgot to weigh it before the additions. This is a
very, very soft yarns, one of the first I bought from
Richard, and as far as I remember, is spun by T&D.

The major adaptation I made, apart from the gauge, was
replacing the original modified drop shoulders with
set-in sleeves. I also added a little more beading
than the pattern called for. Sorry that this does not
show up too well on the photograph, but I beaded in
the centre of each lace motif, above the garter stitch
detail on the fronts and back, round the heart motifs
on the front and above the moss stitch border on the
sleeves. I used Rowan pearly beads for this.

DK Weight Sweater Set

Mardi 27 Mars 2007 15:43:08

These sweaters were made with 100% cashmere DK weight yarn. The cardigan took less than three cones and the shell another cone plus a little more for size XL. After the "tough love" washing and drying treatment, the fabric is wonderfully soft and a pleasure to wear. There is more info on my blog at http://reluctantpenguin.blogspot.com/2007/03/reluctant-sweater-set.html.

Hap shawl finished

Mardi 13 Mars 2007 10:43:05

I've finished the hap shawl made with DK 50%cashmere 50% merino, colour Lilac Moon. It is knitted on 4.5 and 5 mm needles and is 49 ins square (sized for a baby).

Hap shawls were knitted by the women of the Northern and Western Islands of Scotland for their own use. The word 'hap' means to wrap up for warmth! Shawls for women were about 5 or 6 feet square and were worn in a triangle, with the point down the back. The other two ends were then crossed over the breast, passed to the back and tied in the small of the back beneath the point. This keeps you very warn, but the arms and shoulders are unrestricted so that you can continue with your manual work!!

The pattern for this shawl, along with instructions for changing the size of the shawl and the weight of the yarn, will be with Richard shortly!!

Neckerchief

Dimanche 11 Mars 2007 17:28:44

I made this neckerchief for my mother for Mother's Day (next Sunday in the UK). It is made out of 3 strands of 2/28 silk - lilac I think! I got it in a odds and ends lot of cashmere and silk laceweights.

It is knitted on 4 mm needles, and measures 28 ins x 17 ins. It weighs 14 g.

The pattern for the centre is an old Shetland one - cat's paw. Here I have used a stocking stitch ground. Next time I think I will use a garter stitch ground to give more width per inch of drop (if you see what I mean!!) so that the ends can make slightly longer ties.

Cashmere makes the best shawls

Mercredi 07 Mars 2007 23:36:35

I just finished blocking my first shawl knit from Richard's cashmere and I have to say this stuff sure makes the best shawls! I used 2/28 cashmere (aquamarine) and 3.5mm needles to knit the Hidcote Garden Shawl designed by Miriam Felton of MimKnits.com Final size is a whopping 90" across and 44" from center to tip. The cashmere offered excellent stitch defintion and lovely texture, moreso than say baby alpaca would offer in the same situation. I knit the shawl straight off the cone so the yarn was seriously filthy. It tooks 3 rounds of washing with very hot water and liquid soap and 2 rinses or the fiber to come clean. I initially tumbled the shawl on air in the dryer for 5 or so minutes which wasn't enough to fluff the fiber out. Another 3-5 minutes on delicate/low heat did the trick while still leaving the yarn damp enough to wet block. I used blocking wires for the first time--don't know how I would have done it without them. I have all teh details and many more pictures on my blog at www.beadntat.blogspot.com

Children's waistcoat knitted in three shades of pink

Mardi 06 Mars 2007 16:49:37

I knitted this for another one of my grand-daughters (aged 12). This is my own pattern and I used 2 strands of 4ply cashmere together. As always it bloomed beautifully after washing - no complaints about it being 'scratchy'!!

Mardi 06 Mars 2007 16:46:26

I knitted this for one of my grand-daughters (aged 10). It is my own pattern and the basketweave (4 x 4 sts) pattern shows up very well, although not too well in this picture. Lovely yarn to knit with and as always it blooms so well after washing.

Cashmere Lace - Dry Cleaning?

Mardi 27 Février 2007 15:07:41

I just finished a cashmere lace scarf with some lace weight from an "Odds'n Ends" lot off of ebay. It turned out great! It bloomed wonderfully with a wash of Joy dishwashing liquid and a rinse with Finese hair conditioner. (Unfortunately, I don't have a digital camera yet, so I can't post a picture). Here is the thing: I haven't done cashmere lace before (I'm a machine knitter who has worked mostly with acrylic yarn), and it took a while to get it blocked nicely. This scarf it going to the local Red Cross for a fund raising auction, and I want to include some "care" instructions. Is dry cleaning a better recommendation than "hand wash"? Will the typical dry cleaners return it looking like it originally did?

The true colour is a llittle darker and not quite so orangey--more brown tones. I can't get it exactly right with my camera. I really like the colour.
