I don’t think there is a better way to start a four day weekend than with cashmere and a new project…
When I saw the Yarn Harlot post about her cowl pattern, I immediately started looking at my stash on Ravelry. I was a little concerned at first that I wouldn’t have something that worked for this pattern, but then I saw the Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere. I bought this the first time I went to Maryland Sheep and Wool (years ago!), and never found just the right pattern for it (believe it or not – I bought this with the intent to make Larry socks from it – crazy!). And its perfect for this pattern – and I couldn’t cast on fast enough. This is a great pattern, and I’m already planning on making another one. I have a skein of cashmere that I think would be nice for this – and I also have some quivit – this is the perfect pattern for those special skeins.
I was off today, and had a nice relaxing day of knitting, lunch with Andrew and Larry and walking Ruby. I had to work a little this afternoon, but I’m done now, and off until Tuesday. I am planning on lots of knitting time, with a little time for family and golf. That and the cashmere just make it the perfect weekend!
Have a good weekend!
