Swatch to Sample

Yesterday I gave you a little peek into my newest design:

And although I would love to show you the finished product now, we'll all have to wait a bit!  It is amazing to look back upon this swatch from two weeks ago and see the (much) larger and luxurious piece it has turned into.  *Sigh*- oh cashmere, the things you make me do!

Even more exciting is the fact that the pattern for this new design is just about done being written up and will be sent off to the graphic designer very soon.   What this means for me is that I get to cast on a new beauty that I've been excited about since I first laid eyes on it.

Have you seen Jill's new Sonoran Cowl?  She gave me a sneak peek back when it was just a lowly WIP and I was smitten.  Not only is it colorwork (love!), it also calls for the Plucky Knitter's new yarn, Rustic.

And wouldn't you know?  I have the yarn in my possession, ready to go: 

  Better yet, it's aran weight.  Aran! After the laceweight cashmere, the chunkier yarn will be a warm welcome.

Now the real question- grey on green or green on grey?!?

Pin It


  1. ohh can't wait to see your new design!

  2. Green on gray, as I'm a fan of small pops of color. But you can't go wrong either way - those are beautiful colors.

  3. I agree with mblow-green on grey. SO beautiful !

  4. Green on grey! - I doubt we are going to help you much, we'll probably persuade you both ways :)

  5. So hard to choose but I think ... grey on green! Or wait, green on grey? Either will be gorgeous.

  6. Don't think you can go wrong either way, but if I really had to choose, I'd go with green on gray. LOVE!!

  7. Ooh, I'm so intrigued by that gorgeous lace swatch! the colour is amazing, too. That cowl is going to be really pretty- I vote green on grey!
