I ♥ Purple



First time working with Malabrigo Lace weight yarn
I was concerned about the fabric - but have found it's fairly substantial.
Not lacy, just light weight
in this top-down seamless cardigan.

It's so simple, 
just Stockinette stitch.
Check out my Rav Project Page for more about the ADRIFT pattern.

This cowl knit in Malabrigo Worsted
began as a slouchy beret.
Worsted weight yarn - slouchy - Gerry's head
do not make for a compatible outcome.


The Cable/Lace pattern  [Nouveau Bohemia] is a real winner.
I lve it.

Rather than frog the Slouchy
I decided to make it a cowl.
This is going to be great when winter really sets in.
Not only warm, but really soft and lovely feeling.

If you are interested in making either the

These purples
make my heart happy.
