The stashbust continues! This cowl will be gifted to someone on my Christmas list, most likely whoever I don’t really know what to buy for…
Another WIP Wednesday! Finally finished the color work on the body and then it’s mindless stockinette til the pockets, woo! Also as you can see I’m wearing two shirts underneath; the final sweater will have much more ease than in this picture, hahaha.

A Baby Surprise Jacket in the works for my expecting cousin! It’s gonna have frog buttons.
Knitting inspiration: stained glass. THE COLORS!!!
I’m having trouble articulating instead of just drooling. What is it about jewel tones clearly delineated by geometric black frames? When I say it like that it kind of loses its magic, which leads me to believe that it’s one of those whole-greater-than-sum things. Either way, this seems to be the direction in which my desire for rich transitional colors seems to be heading.

I started halfway through the first repeat. The slouchiness was the most pronounced after blocking, if slouchy is what you’re going for!
Many people keep asking me for solid and/or natural colorways … These are some of the rather natural and quiet colorways I’ve dyed. They will be available tomorrow night.
Shop Update: Oct. 28th, 8 p.m. CET!
