I jumped on the Caron Cake bandwagon.
I chose Lilac Frosting (cream, beige, lavender and violet).
The yarn is soft and I had no problem with the abrupt color changes.
I had one knot I needed to cut out, but overall I was pleased.
I chose to make a Granny Shawl Scarf designed by Charlene Van den Brande.
I fell in love with the designer’s color scheme (reds, blues, tans and browns).
However, I was making this scarf for charity so I decided to try it with the Caron Cake.
My thought was that there would be less ends to weave in and therefore would hold up to multiple washings.
The Caron Cake was enough to get to round 16 and do a simple HDC border.
I’ll be copying the designers color scheme for my own and I’ll be increasing the original starting chain.
Also, for mine, I’ll finally remember to do my starting chain with a larger hook (I always forget to do that).
My LYS was having a Labor Day sale (50% off) and I picked up some squishy, yummy yarn for my birthday!
First project up is Sophie’s Cardigan by Mon Petit Violon using Cascade 220 Superwash Sport in Cotton Candy.
Next up (to help practice my knitting and purling) is GAP-tastic Cowl by Jen Geigley using Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky in Cafe Au Lait. This yarn is sooooo soft!
I also picked up some back issues of Knit Simple (my favorite knitting magazine).
I had some fun using my new Amish Style Swift (purchased here).
I love it!
Happy Knitting & Crocheting!
