I have made it quite clear here once or twice before that my feelings for Jared Flood are stonger than they probably should be. But I am not afraid to re-state that fact here.
Especially after casting off yet another one of his wonderous pieces.
And while it might be too toasty outside to wear a cozy cowl, it's never too warm to knit one.
So, that's what I did.
Pattern? Setzer by Jared Flood aka Brooklyn Tweed
Yarn? Naturally's Harmony 10 ply (this seems to be my current go-to yarn for accessories)
Needles? 5mm 60 cm Chiaogoo Red
While it looks like lots of lovely welts while wearing it, to lie it out flat gives a whole different story thanks to my favorite knitting technique in existence- short rows!
See the curves and winding bands? Looks kind of like a gentle ski slope? (My favorite kind of ski slope...)
It's a little secret that only you will know until you yank this little number off and toss it on the hall table.
I do love finding little secrets in other people's knitting.
And while peony season is now behind us (where IS this summer going? I ask)...
It never hurts to look back on days in the garden gone by.
