On the needles: Traverso Due

traverso_due

I have so many things on my needles right now! From baby hats, sweaters, and dresses to this  Fall coat especially for me, a Holey Square in Handmaiden Lino, and the Traverso Due scarf / wrap pictured above (free pattern can be downloaded here).  Although my attention is flitting from one to the other, I’m making steady, if not speedy, progress on them all. Each project is enjoyable for different reasons and, although a complete departure for me, I’m all over the pink/peach/orange colourways in this combination of Rowan Kidsilk Haze Stripe (California Sunrise) and Madelinetosh Prairie (Espadrilles). The fabric created by holding a strand of Kidsilk Haze (mohair + silk) and Prairie (merino) together is light, airy, and soft and the merino lace yarn adds a satisfying heft to the piece. Unfortunately, we’re sold out of both of these colourways in store but I’ve put together some alternatives below that would be equally stunning.

Note: Scarf requires 1 skein of Prairie and 2 balls of Kidsilk Haze Stripe.
