Yesterday, I was in Munich. Today I am in England. Tomorrow I will be in Johannesburg. After that, I will head to Vancouver. I am in heavy travel mode. What does that mean? Travel knitting of course; the thing that knitters most obsess about when packing a bag.
I have decided to have two projects with me, so that I can alternate between them. First, I am going to knit Cullum, a linen t-shirt with a touch of lace, designed by Isabell Kraemer:
I am using the very same yarn used in the photo, a gorgeous deep grey shade of Quince & Co Sparrow called Eclipse. Sparrow is a 100% organic linen yarn. It is luminous:
My second project will be the Hanne Falkenberg jacket I discussed in my last post. I clearly was experiencing technical difficulties on that morning, as I couldn’t read Hanne’s pattern. When she sent me instructions for a swatch, I realised that I had completely mis-read the instructions for the jacket. I even went back and checked, so convinced I was right, but no, the instructions were perfect and it was me that was lacking. Here is the swatch:
I love this! The photo is lovely, but it is far better to hold it in your hand! It is so soft, yet wool-y, and light like a feather. (Unlike the Sparrow, which is a bit rough on the hands; I know from experience that it will block into a very soft, drapey fabric, however.)
This is a run-by post as I am heading for the airport. Good knitting everyone!
