Summer Tweed

Rowan Summer Tweed has to be one of my all-time-favorite yarn.

In between re-doing the landscape, planning and planting the vegetable, running the household, and working full-time at the Voice of America, I managed to finish two summer tops, thanks to Summer Tweed. Here is a top I (sort of) designed.

The original pattern is one that Penny uses in her beginner knitting class. Yes, at the Yarn Barn, you knit a sweater, with cable, in your beginner's class! I used the Rowan Summer Tweed, turned it into a sleeveless vest/shell, did it in stripes and changed the original horseshoe cable to braided cables. It was a quick knit.

Another quick knit is the Sunshine sweater from the Kasbah Collection everybody is knitting.

I started early last week:

And here is the finished product:

I am very happy with it!

Lastly, the mailman delivered my Socks that Rock! that I wasn't able to get at the Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. The color way is Lunasea. I got three skeins of the medium weight. No I am not knitting three pairs of socks in the same colorway. This is going to be my first Charlotte's Web shawl.

Keep knitting!
