Cabled Collar

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Elsebeth Lavold pattern

What a fun project to knit. I used Elsebeth Lavold’s Silky Cashmere which is a delight to work with – softness plus some. The little cables were neat and no trouble at all. The two ruffled edges were a bit challenging because there were so many stitches (300+) as you can imagine to get the ruffling. As she said, a collar is a nice change from scarves.

Close up of the cables. As you can see, this yarn has a nice sheen to it also.

Lace Shawl with Beading

Posted by Caroline Hershey


Working on a lace shawl and I’m wondering if my beads will show. Did I buy ones too small?
They are size 8 and what the pattern calls for so we’ll see. Sure going slowly. The yarn is Twisted Sisters silk yarn.

Felted Scarf

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Rowan KidSilk Aura

I used the Aura to knit a straight scarf in stockinette stitch with 2 balls until the yarn ran out. Then I felted it just using two bowls of water, one hot and one cold. It took just 30 minutes to felt. Cathy then added the embroidery stitches making it a unique piece. She used a whipped stem stitch and the heads just plain straight stitches.  The foam is Pekinese  stitch. Can you imagine the wind blowing the beach grasses with foam from the waves.

Thank you! Very, very prompt! I received it yesterday.
