October Smart Asses – with Gina and Jane (and Mom)

The October package of the Smart Ass Knitters/World Domination Club has arrived!  Something to make me smile.

There’s some gorgeous Merino Silk-quel Lace (80% merino/20% silk) in the colourway You Know You’re Doing It Right When Both Your Mother and Jane Austen Would Disapprove,  a pattern – Gina Lollobrigida – by designer Kate Atherley, and some yummy organic bath salts – Orange and Clove – made by Karen Sloan.

The yarn is delicious and soft, in a sort of shimmery silvery warm grey.

The pattern is for a lovely lacy camisole, and for a cowl if you want your knitting to be visible.  (The yarn is enough for both.)   Since I’m not really a camisole kinda person, and this isn’t exactly a warm wooly underwear kinda climate, I’m thinking of using the yarn for a larger cowl, probably the Reunion Cowl, by Natalie Selles.  And if I can manage it in the Indigodragonfly Cowl Along, all the better.   I really want to finish some WIPs first, though.

It’s time to get back to knitting, dammit!!

    OOoooh! That’s some beautiful yarn! That package definitely falls in the “Brighten Up My Day” category. I’m drooling over the color so I’d better publish this comment before my keyboard drowns and short circuits. Hope you’re feeling well and taking the fast lane to being on the mend!
