i don’t know about where you live, but where i am, the air has turned very crisp in the last couple of days—last evening i was glad to have a scarf around my neck and wished i had thought to grab some mitts as well.
hard to believe it’s that time of year again . . . fall!
and we have just the thing to make the best of advancing chilly evenings and mornings—a cute hat and mitt set with matching scarf; take one or more as needed.
this fall set knits up super-fast in an entertaining openwork pattern that provides just the perfect layer of warmth for the season—not too much, not too little.
and it’s cute, too; warm, but light and fun—i know i’m not ready for bulletproof knits just yet.
what more could we ask for?
well, maybe one of romi’s metal stick pins to keep everything in place as prettily as possible, yes?
or maybe, a discount on this yummy yarn?
susan has generously offered one—use the coupon code “fallberry” to get 10% off your entire yarn order at slackford studio through december 20th.
and below, size large knit up again in pathway sport, this time in colorway roast carrots
susan at slackford studio has such terrific yarn in wonderfully cheerful colorways. she dyes on a very nice selection of yarn bases, some of them very luxurious (she dyed the yarn for our aria delicato scarf, mmm). she’s been hard at work stocking up her online shop with pathway for this release, but don’t forget to look at her other offerings while you’re there.
once again, our dear friend agnes cheerfully contributed her expertise by test knitting the purple samples, while i knit the orange ones. and when we were finished, we traded! i just love my dusk til dawn set; i feel so lucky to be able wear agnes’s work.
and our pattern release would not be complete without beautiful photos, taken at the farm of our friends helena and kris, who modeled for us, along with a few critter friends.
aren’t they just adorable? we are so lucky and grateful to work with such lovely and talented women.
and of course, kudos to david for getting so many beautiful shots; he’s a magician behind the lens.
