Something old and something new!!
Titus from Baa Ram Ewe
A delicious blend of Wensleydale and Bluefaced Leicester wool, combined with a touch of magical UK Alpaca. This luxurious yet authentic combination is also reflected in the range of shades: deep, rich colors that evoke images and memories of a land which has such strong historic connections to wool and wool manufacturing.
Titus is spun in Yorkshire, by the West Yorkshire Spinners of Keighley.
(5/21/15) I’m mid-way through the Drachenfels shawl design by Melanie Berg using Manos del Uruguay Serena. This unique design brings to mind mythical dragons with a slipped garter colorwork pattern that hints of scales. It’s worked in garter stitch from tip to edge, then neatly finished with I-cord bind-off. Asymmetrical increases create an elongated triangle shape, creating a beautiful work sure to keep you warm.
I also am midway through Bolt, designed by the talented and imaginative Veera Valimaki. Defined as a scarf, I would say that it starts as a shawl and ends as a scarf! I used our new Leinen Los in cream and charcoal, although we have 4 colors to choose from. I think it will make a nice 3 season accessory!
