On my needles... – Yarning for Ewe
StevenBe Workshops Now on Sale!

I am currently knitting a pattern called Cusp by Olga Buraya-Kefelian. She created this pattern for Brooklyn Tweed's 2015 Capsule Collection. It's a hexagonal pull over that draws detail to cables and geometry galore.

This sweater taught me to do a new cast on (the Circular Cast-On which Laura Nelkin does a perfectly good job teaching you on Youtube) and how to drop down traveling cables, fix them, then bring those stitches back up. As easy and intuitive as this pattern is, if focus is lost for a minute, you may find yourself with a cable that zagged when it should have zigged. 

This pattern has been perfectly paired with Frabjous Fiber's March Hare yarn. This yarn company, Wonderland Yarns, has themed their yarns after Lois Carol's Alice in Wonderland. I'm currently using Shilling&Pence, a beautiful heathered teal blue. The yarn is a 100% superwash merino and has been a delight to knit with. If anyone knows, I can (and do so easily) get distracted, so even after all the unknitting I have done, this yarn has held up wonderfully.
