New store sample: Capture

I had big plans to knit up a storm over the holidays but, in the end, only managed to work on a few smaller projects at a very leisurely pace.  This shimmering confection is my version of Capture by Lisa Mutch – a beautiful, meditative knit which works especially well with that skein of luxury hand-dyed yarn you’ve been saving for just the right project. We chose Maiden Hair from Handmaiden Fine Yarns (67% Silk, 23% Mohair, 10% Nylon) which lends both a silky lustre and a soft mohair halo to the geometric chevron pattern. That said, more casual versions of this scarf in merino or alpaca are also gorgeous (check out Capture on Ravelry here for other ideas).

The holidays are over and the time is right for a little personal / selfish knitting wouldn’t you say? Cast on…
