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!!
