Now that a certain ground hog has told us that Winter is certainly sticking around, nothing is more enticing than burrowing in and getting cozy inside…
My current favorite activity? No doubt: bundling up on the couch with a good movie AND a great knit!
I’ve gone cabin-crazy knitting top-down sweaters in this new year and don’t see it stopping – I’m on number three right now and just plan to keep on going until I run out of steam (or the need for a lap blanket is gone). :)
You know there is nothing more soothing and cozy than wrapping yourself in a pile of wool and there’s always room for the simple, the essential – IBA is first off the needles.
The IBA style is something that many of you wrote to me asking for – and incorporates lots of all of our favorite knitting moments: top-down construction, no seaming, built-in neckband, and a relaxed fit…
It has lots of plain knitting in there too – I almost named this Netwatcher because it has accompanied me on many rounds "at-the-movies" on you-know-where. IBA has just enough stitch detailing to keep it interesting but enough lovely happy Stockinette Stitch in an Aran gauge to get done in no time at all!
Here’s a style that can zoom through those lovely fiber fest barn yarns or simply and elegantly showcase some favorite handpaint.
