A different yarn

I thought I’d spend more time with yarn in its fiber form, than yarn in its storytelling form.  The latest Lion Brand catalog popped up in my mailbox this week, and I fell in love with this pattern. I had taken a break from knitting for the past few months, mostly because I could never really finish any project I started. But this is a simple little top that won’t take very long to do at all.

I’m already a little more than a fourth of the way done.  I’m using Cascade Sierra, which is seriously some of the softest wool I’ve worked with. So far, I think two skeins of this yarn will suffice for my project. I’m not sure if the wrap top on mine will have a lace pattern, I still have to figure out how to do the wrap in the first place, but I’m hopeful it will turn out alright.  I’m not following any pattern though, just using this picture as inspiration.

  1. That’s gorgeous! I still haven’t gotten up the nerve to try something more challenging that a scarf. Which, works out actually, since I love scarves. Still, it would be nice to make something else….

    Scarves are actually one of the best ways to learn all the great patterns and tricks of knitting, in a small and contained space. =)

  3. It was a thrill to see your post and know that you were inspired by something in our catalog.
