Random Sunday


I’ve finished knitting ‘Dew Point’, Laura Chau’s latest beautiful shrug design , and could not be happier.

Loved the design, how it is written with a matrix to pick up the sizes and stitch numbers, so you fill in the blanks within the pattern, following your own size. Very smart! I wish all knitting patterns in different sizes were written this way… good job Laura!

I also loved the yarn, 60% Merino, 40% Bamboo, from indigoDragonFly in colourway ‘Oh Glenna And Her Lemongrass Martinis’, a very soft dreamy yarn to knit with. I almost used a whole skein, which comes in a generous 650 yds, 225g per skein. I love your yarn Kim!

Here are a few pictures I took today, after blocking the shrug:
