Another Pure & Simple Pattern.
These patterns are always a delight to knit. No matter how many garments or lace projects are completed I always enjoy a P&S project and never tire of their steadfast simplicity.
Pattern: Neck Down Swing Coat
Fiber Noro Furisode (Discontinued)
Amount: 6 1/2 Skeins
Completion Time: 21 days
If there is a knitter out there that hasn't seen the new publication, Coastal Knits, then you should drop everything and search one out. It is a lovely book filled with beautiful stories and beach shots located along the Maine and California coasts, 'cause that's where these two lovely designers, Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig, are from. I can truly say I want to knit one of every pattern in the book, but chose to start with the Water's Edge Cardigan. So far I have about 4 inches to show and loving the marriage of this pattern with Rowan, Kidsilk Aura in a yummy wheat shade #752 (sorry this fiber has been discontinued).
and yes.....we put up our Christmas tree today!
