Woolfolk, Je T'aime!
Recently, I was able to knit up two sweaters in Woolfolk's yarns, Tov and Tynd. The Angelina Pullover by Mary Anne Bennedetto (which is YFE's current Knit-Along) was an easy pattern that just knit-up itself. This pattern is featured in the newest Interweave Fall 2017 magazine. The Fall 2017 edition is a great magazine as there are a number of structured sweaters that are perfect for Atlanta's cooler months. A beautiful wine hued Ruana is featured on the cover....it would be perfect to throw on while running around town! The Angelina Pullover is a top-down sweater that features a cabled yoke, A line shaping, and a curved hemline. I had kept putting off learning the Norwegian/Twisted german cast-on and as this was the preferred method to cast-on, it was fairly easy to pick up! This is a great project to learn how to cable, create increases, and read a chart. Since the weather gods have turned against me (it's still 75 degrees in November), my Angelina Pullover is patiently sitting on the sidelines, waiting anxiously to be worn.
Tynd just may be one of my new favorite yarns! This lighter than air fingering weight yarn works up beautifully on its own for shawls (check out Gard by Melanie Berg) or knit to strands together for these awesome garments or accessories (Skygge or Husly).
Skygge was my favorite Tynd pattern and I really enjoyed watching how each ombre section was created.
