Yesterday I spent pretty much the entire day working on a piece that I am sample knitting for Weaverknits. You may recognize her work from the Spring 2010 issue of Interweave Knits:
In addition to this pattern, she has over thirty other designs that you can view and knit on Ravelry.
I've been following the Weaverknits blog for some time now and when the call for sample knitters went out, I jumped at the chance. Literally. I think I emailed her within minutes of the post. These samples will be for a collection of designs that she will be publishing towards the fall. The yarn she sent me to use for this sample is Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb. It is an oh-so-soft lace weight yarn in a colorway appropriately titled Glacier Blue. I may have fallen in love with this yarn the moment I opened the package.
It's like a big, soft, squishy easter egg made of yarn. The color is wonderfully vibrant. You can't help but feel happy when you see it. And the fabric it is producing is so soft and ethereal. Ok, enough blogging. Back to knitting.
