Elsebeth Lavold Workshop

Mitered Cables

I worked feverishly to finish my shoulder bag before the workshop. Watching the NCAA basketball game into the wee hours helped keep me going so that it may have been still damp the next day but it was finished!

The pattern can be found in the Elsebeth Lavold Third Viking Knits Collection which seems to be in short supply. We are hoping the reprinting happens soon. The yarn is Silky Wool used double and slightly felted. It’s particularly neat because it uses her method of construction of cables in a small project.

Of course we couldn’t let Elsebeth and Anders get away from us without THE photo. It’s nice to be able to report that they are as delightful to be around, take classes from as they appear.

Falling Water Scarf

Posted by Caroline Hershey

The crocus bud pattern was not working out for what I wanted to use it for (will find a lighter weight yarn for that lovely pattern), so moved on to the Falling Water pattern in Elsebeth Lavold Bambool yarn. You can find this pattern as a free download on Ravelry. The yarn is soft, drapes beautifully for the scarf.

Snow on Chincoteague

Posted by Caroline Hershey

We woke up to snow falling which was a little distressing but gave me a reason to hunt through my stitch patterns to find something a little “springy.” Found this one… crocus buds…which was exactly what I was looking for. What do you think of it?

The camelias are still beautiful even though a little droopy with the weight of the snow. We are continually wowed with the incredible camelias here on the Island. Many six feet tall or higher just full of bloom.

KnitXperience Lite

What a weekend! For a lite weekend, we got pretty intense with the cast ons and bind offs. And then the majority of us discovered Portuguese Knitting. Fun and educational for all.

Dolce Sweater

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Leslie visited our booth at the Quilt Festival in Hampton this past week and modeled the sweater she had made from our Carodan Farm yarn and the Dolce Handknits pattern, Montauk. It is lovely and fits her very well. Thanks and great job Leslie!
