trying to put a last little bit of summer into a jar to savor through the fall? this might be just the project to do that for you. a pretty tangle of pea vines twines around the hem of this fingering weight shawlette, into a charming trellis of crossed twigs that travels to the neck. knit in a light bamboo/merino blend, this piece traverses the seasons with the grace of a beautifully turned leaf. a little more challenging to knit than some, but like a good garden, very worth the effort.
and if a triangle isn’t quite to your fancy, hold onto your hat—we have a rectangle version forthcoming . . . . in a week or so, i think.
kim’s bamboo/merino pandora yarn is just delightful to knit with, but the best part of this project was being able to collaborate with my wonderful friend once again. we just love “cooking” together and—i think—our enjoyment in these joint projects shines through in the result. kim is expanding her yarn selections in all sorts of directions lately—you should take a trip to her online shop to see!
as with every even slightly complex project, we rely on our trusty test knitters to help us make sure that everything about the pattern works as it should. MANY thanks to phoebe, kim, jocelyn, robin (sorry, i can’t find a link!), and tana for all the expert care they take when knitting for us.
and last but not least, thank you to dear david for getting up extra early and taking a field trip to capture another set of beautiful photos; they are lovely. david has posted a very short film ditty of pea vines the the farmers market; you can find it here.
