Casting On, Binding Off

(Gyrid) Life of Pi project is Finished. I love this top. Love the fabric created by stranding two Rowanspun 4 ply yarns together.
This is the combination of yarn that I will use to knit up Eris, the cardi. Not necessarily this color combo - I've got this yarn in 9 colors, but this yarn knit doubled is wonderful. If I weren't stashing along I just might visit Yarnela and Cucumber Patch to see what is left and what the colors are. Sadly, Rowan discontinued this yarn a year ago or more.
Pattern - Elsebeth Lavold Gryid

Yarn - one strand each Rowanspun 4ply Midnight Blue and Holly Green

Needles size 6 US addi turbo. Gauge 22 st to 4"

Drops cardi is On. Working on black is a daylight proposition.

Orangina is coming along - slowly. I've not spent much time working on it lately. I love it in this nylon Katia Seville though. Who would've thought that a summer top in nylon ribbon would be ok? Better than ok?

Marji, that sweater looks amazing! You did a beautiful job.

That tank top is gorgeous. Orangina is pretty too. That's nylon ribbon? I am so going to my LYS. Soon.

Have you seen Calla?

Oh, the top turned out so beautiful, and it fits you perfectly - you did an amazing job with that!
And Orangina is coming along so fine, can't wait to see it when it's finished!

Gyrid is gorgeous. Love the shape, very flattering.

I know what you mean about knitting black yarn. Done it a couple of times and I now avoid it.

Elizabeth said...

Nice work on Gyrid. It suits you perfectly.
