New Threads FRIDAY, yup, TGIF!!

Design: Chic Knits
Yarn: Ella Rae *Classic*
Color: #42 Bluish Green
Gauge: 19 sts/24 rows over 4″
Needles: #7

I just couldn’t resist a back-to-back new threads this week! And this second NewT is not only special because it’s FRIDAY! (shout it out), it’s very wonderful because it is the lovely Isobel! She has just finished a Twist sweater (with the collar option) and I must say, it is spectacular! The color and craftsmanship is so very nice..

Now, if I could, I would travel the States (and beyond) and visit knitting groups. Isobel and her friend Jane knit at a place called the Yarn Lounge in Richmond, VA. This group is always making the most wonderful knits and I know that behind the wonderful knitting there is always wonderful knitters :)

Someday, I’m getting on a plane and crashing this partay!

Until then, ladies, and everyone, have a Great Weekend!

    What a lovely picture — from the backdrop to the model to the sweater. A great way to start my Friday!

  2. Karen B. says:

    Beautiful! I, too, have thought about doing a Knitting Tour. How much fun would that be, traveling to different regions (or countries) and connecting with each other through these things we hold in common? Love it!

  3. Jennifer says:

    Beautiful sweater and picture!

  4. rachel says:

    Gorgeous! Kudos to both the knitter and the designer.

  5. Tracey says:

    Oooh! I love it! I luuurrv the color too. There is nothing more classic than a great green cardi.

  6. Isobel says:

    Oh my goodness I feel like a celebrity! This was a great knit! Very well written and easy to follow. The fit is great!
    Any time you want to come see us in VA, we’d love to see you!

  7. Carol says:

    I don’t know how you do it! One great design after another! I’ve dedicated a 3 ring binder to your patterns exclusively. Now don’t you just feel complete? ;)

  8. Tricia says:

    Like everyone else said, I love it and that color is one of my all time favorites! Beautiful sweater from both knitter and designer.

  9. Wendy says:

    Will you be jealous if I tell you I’ve hung out and knitted with Isobel and Jane at The Yarn Lounge? They are both wonderful ladies and The Yarn Lounge is a great place to sit and knit!
