Vivienne, On the Needles Now


by Helen Rose

from NEED

I’ve had a few ask for this top and am making my own “test” of the pattern prior to using a customers wool.  I adore this in a semi solid but knew I didn’t have enough so I’m using a kettle dyed colorway from Little Monkey Stitch n Spin called “Sunset”

Vivienne Top 001

I’ve 2 more inches till I start the lace patterning & so far I’m loving the pattern.

I’ve found it to be very well written and the one question I had for the designer was answered quickly…..and ended up I was reading things in to the pattern. I should have this done tomorrow and plan to make bloomers to coordinate

And listed yesterday to the Katidids Etsy Shop 

Another Seed Stitch Cowl

The reds, greys & black are nice gender neutral colors

Super soft and squishy, it easily slides over your head & has plenty of length to tuck around the neck line of a coat.  Reds, greys and black nice gender neutral colors.

Seed Stitch Cowl 005

Also on the needles, are the longies for a Waldorf doll. I’ve frogged them twice but think I have the pattern down now & will finish them today.

Snow last night and it’s chilly today….I’m staying inside and knitting

Got your wool on?
