Items for Sale!

I always do this, work so hard on things and take forever to get around to posting about them!  This time, I have just added my newest creations for sale in my Etsy Shop.  I love patterning but sometimes its fun just to knit for no reason.  So having a recent obsession with the linen stitch I got 2 skeins of Manos Del Uruguay Wool Clasica (1 in solid green, and 1 in a variegated range of sunset colors) from K1 Yarns and set to with my new friends. I am in love with the color combo and how they work together to look woven and unique.   Outcome below:

Sunset Cowl:

This Cowl is warm, looks great and is reversible. The linen stitch on the outside gives a nice woven look, while creating a seed-stitch look on the inside. It is about 7” tall and 20” around.

I just cast on, knitted in the rib for a rounds, switched to linen stitch (2 rounds color A, 2 rounds color B) and finished with another ribbing.

Sunset Infinity Scarf:

This loop scarf is ALSO warm, looks great and is reversible. It also is made using the linen stitch, and is accented with a crocheted edging. It is about 4.5” tall and 44” around.

I cast on a few stitches and worked back and forth in the linen stitch (2 rows color A, 2 rows color B) till I liked the length. Cast off via 3-needle bind off, and crochet the edge with sc stitches.
