ChicKnits New Threads Tuesday


Dear Watson
Pattern: Chic Knits
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Black Water Abbey
Color: Navy
Gauge: 18sts/24rows over 4″
Needles: #6, #7 & #8

Knowing, on this grey, cloudy day, I didn’t stand a chance inH of taking a good picture of this wonderful color, I give you the above – including, at no extra cost, the Fred&George hair! I figure this Fusion Knitting thing is as close as I’ll get to the Molly Weasley School of Knitting…

The Yarn: I fell in love with this yarn at a fiber fest this summer – and before I could shout IMPEDIMENTA! it jumped out of the booth an into my bag. Stupified, I carried it home, without a clue as to what I was going to do with it. Even though the vendor (the actual BWA people) had a trunk show going on in the booth with a whole cast of cable rich characters, I longed for something that would just show off the beauty of the color of this yarn.

And so it became the simplest of all – Stockinette Stitch – perfect for a run on the knitting machine with Hand Finishing of the edges. Out of this yarn, even the lowly St st has reached its top form. BWA makes a firm FABRIC and this sweater reminds me of my favorite DARK Blue Jean Jacket – I have little pockets (rounded bottoms this time out but just big enough for the keys & cards) that button and a nice shaped fit.

Elemental (still in the finishing stages) my Dear Watson! (DONE!)
