Summer Knitting Projects
I am about 3/4 of the way done with the sweater I am making. It’s a pattern from the Rowan Cotton Lustre collection called “RAN”. I am using a yarn from Schachenmayr called “Journey”
it’s a cotton jersey material. While I like the feel of the yarn, it’s kind of stuffed with cotton and every so often the cotton stuffing appears to come out. I love the color I chose though, it reminds me of the beach. Below the shoulder it has some short rows for shaping. I think I need to practice doing those as I am not 100% happy with the way they came out.
I finished the knit version of my family art piece. I like the knit version better than the crochet version. I stretched this over a piece of canvas and glued it with craft glue. If I do it again, I am going to knit the word “Family” using the intarsia method rather than carrying the black yarn across the row. I think it will have a smoother effect.
