Rather than this being an ode to delicious fruit, it’s a reference to my two most recently completed projects. I think I meant to do separate entries for them, but at this point, it’s just not happening.
The Plum Scarf is actually from a pattern called Mustard Scarf created by Jane Richmond. It was knit in a skein of Colinette Iona in Velvet Plum, which was a gift from Abbie from her trip to Portland, OR. It was a great way to use a small (150 yards or less) skein of worsted and satisfyingly quick since it’s knit on US 15 needles.
Raspberries! (a reference to Thoroughly Modern Millie) is the pattern Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante (Feministy.com). It was knit in The Plucky Knitter Silk Merino Fingering Weight in Raspberry Bubble. During Stashdown, I have reduced my stash down to thirteen lots of yarn, and four of them are Plucky, if it gives you any idea how much I love her dyeing.
Then finally, just because I can share it, an actual WIP. I rarely take pictures of projects while I’m in the process of knitting them, but this one is for a friend, and I wanted her to be able to see the progress as I knit, so here’s the start of a Herbivore by Stephen West (westknits) in Wool Candy Macaron MCN in Cerises.
