Two Finished Rowan Pieces

Mary recently finished two Rowan projects. This first one is out of Renew from the Purelife Autumn book. I have included a detail of the stitch pattern, it is gorgeous.

Next is an older project. It was on the cover of last year's Rowan magazine. It is knit in Cocoon. How cozy for a cold winter day!

Some Amy Butler Projects

We have been excited about Amy Butler yarns and her book, Midwest Modern since it came in mid-Spring. And sure, we had samples from the company that are wonderful. But the garments are always much more satisfying to see when we knit them! Here are two examples of recently finished Amy Butler patterns:

This one I finished recently. It is shaped with short-rows so the construction is a little bit different than your average sweater. I can't wait to wear it!

This is the fabulous striped tunic which I desperately wanted to knit but was unable to narrow it down to two colors (they are all so pretty!). A customer beat me to it. It looks great. This piece is so versatile, I think she is going to wear this all the time.

Some more finished projects

It is finishing time here at the Knitting Workshop. In spite of our current heat wave, quite of few of us are getting some late Summer/early Fall projects done. This is great because we will be ready when the weather turns cooler. Here are two lovely examples:

First is Dusk from Rowan's Silk Twist Classics. This sweater feels like a dream to wear, it is so soft and comfortable. And what a pretty color!

Below is Bleaklow from Louisa Harding's Little Cake. It is knit out of Thistle. A perfect layer for Fall weather. I just love it.

Check back soon, I will be posting even more finished projects.
