Two weeks ago, we invited you to share on Instagram your first knitting project of 2017 by using the hashtag #newyearcaston. We were really pleased to see how many of you answered to the call, so we thought it would be nice to show everyone’s progresses in a short blog post.
Tanya has been super proficient as she already finished her New Year Cast On and it is an absolute beauty! Svana by Diana Walla, was originally published in the collection Glen:Fall 2016 and was designed in grey, blue and white. Tanya slightly changed the colourway by using two variations of blue, and a white De Rerum Natura Ulysse, which work really well together, and are just contrasted enough to gives lots of impact to the wave motifs.
Suzanne nearly finished her version of Yabane by Kyoko Nakayoshi, knitted in the beautiful Soft Donegal by Studio Donegal. We’re obviously surrounded by very efficient knitters, as Emma also finished her shawl – Mareel by Ysolda Teague – in just two weeks.
The shade Typewriter is probably one of my favourite of the Hedgehog Fibre Merino DK, so I was really excited to see Kim starting Skiff with that yarn. No doubt this is going to look great once finished.
Emma has been pondering on what cardigan she should knit using Retrosaria Beiroa. After swatching on various needles sizes, she finally picked up Naima and we can’t wait to see her progress!
Tig also chose Beiroa to knit her Seachange jumper in a beautiful combination of brown and green.
Kate is knitting Waits by Bristol Ivy using the Everyday Sport by the Uncommon Thread in colour Turbillion. With its minimalist design, Waits will highlight beautifully the light speckles of the yarn.
I – Eugenie – am 7 inches into my Atlas by Jared Flood knitted with some 2ply Jumper by Jamieson and Smith. As I am knitting it for myself, I had to size up the pattern to get 36” circumference around the chest. So far so good, I am really looking forward to start the yoke, it’s going to be my first colour-work ever!
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
