Remember when I mentioned Theresa had added some new yarns to the shop? and that I might’ve brought a few skeins home with me?
Um, yep! Today I’m sharing the first project with y’all. This is Brooklyn Tweed Shelter (my first time knitting with this yarn) and it’s going to be a blanket for Charlie’s little brother.
The gradient possibilities seemed like a perfect match with Purl Soho’s Colorful Wedges pattern. And I’d heard wonderful things about knitting garter stitch on larger needles with this yarn….and about how soft and light the fabric is after blocking.
The pattern is written for a sport weight yarn on size 5 needles; I did a rough calculation and cast on 25 fewer stitches on size 9s.
I think it’s gonna be perfect!
In hindsight, maybe I should’ve titled this post “perfect pairings“. How about a little dark early knitting on the porch to see a beautiful sunrise?
Have you used Shelter? I’d love to hear about your experience with it…please share!
