This stitch pattern was an idea for a long & wide scarf, which I ended up changing for the final version. The scarf is now sitting on my studio table...taunting me. I really want to wear it! But, since it hasn't been blocked or photographed yet, I best leave it be.
The scarf will be featured in a small collection coming out later this year for Quince.
I finished my Shelter cap and have been wearing it non-stop. It seems to be the only warm hat I possess.
The sweater is one I designed last winter and was put away due to some funky shoulder shaping that made the drapey cardigan droop off my shoulders. But now with my baby belly getting fuller, I yanked it from the archive bin so that I'd have something to keep me warm. There are a few features I do appreciate in the design—dart shaping in the back, the long length that covers the bum, and the cozy, wrap-me-up style of the drapey front. I think it's worth re-designing the shoulders and knitting it up in Tern (sample garment was knit in Moorland by CE).
My good friends came up from Brooklyn for the weekend. We walked all around Portland, ate lobster and scallops, and went to our favorite Fryeburg Fair. Tiya ended up going home with Etienne, since she looks so darn stunning in it.
And, yes, that's me in the last photo. Looking rather pregnant. I've been wearing that sweater a lot lately. It's one I made last year and intended on publishing the pattern. Though, after some thought I decided I wanted to make a few changes to the design: shorter sleeves, longer body, wider neck...well...not sure when, if ever, I'll get to making that version. However, I've been quite happy with the cropped, bell shaped silhouette and I loooooove the yarn (Terra by the Fibre Co.).
