Hugs & Kisses


At last I can show you my recent knitting!   This is a cabled wrap/scarf/cowl — it all depends on how you wear it. I am considering attaching a bit of i-cord and a button and turning it into a cowl.

The pattern is Hugs n Kisses Cabled Wrap by Shiri Mor. She is a knit/crochet wear designer who also does some teaching and custom pattern writing for the shop where I work. I test knit this pattern for her and I can tell you that the chart and directions are very thoughtfully done. Shiri is also active on Ravelry, you can find her here and offers full pattern support if you have any questions.

The yarn is Blue Sky Alpaca Suri Merino and it may just be my new favorite yarn. I love it – it has the whole luxury thing down pat, so soft and pretty, but it is also extremely strong, and not delicate at all.

Another little something I have recently whipped up …….

Scaruffle!

Heeding Kathleen’s warning that the scarf is a bit short, I added 20 stitches to the cast on. I also wanted to make it work with one skein of the KSH so I combined the final row of picking up the short rows with the bind off row – which worked out fine. I think I had maybe three inches of yarn left over. The details are all on my Ravelry page .

Unlike Shiri, Lucy the Pug offers you nothing. Nothing. Except her alluring beauty.
