Did you know that Romney Ridge Farm in Maine has a Random Acts of Yarn Club? I participated for the month of July – the money raised ($130 I think) went to dachshund rescue, so yay on that, and double yay for a fantastic color. I was pretty much obsessed with making the Shalom pattern having seen another Raveler’s version with Romney Ridge Yarn. I followed modifications that were in the Malabrigo Junkies Ravelry Group – the sweater is to be knit with a chunky weight held double – now that would be a cozy sweater! I wanted to knit it single stranded and the modifications by SFCorgi were spot on! This took less than a week to knit – it was straightforward and yet kept my attention. I plan on wearing it with a long sleeve shirt underneath, but did not have the energy for that today – it’s too hot and humid, even inside with A/C.
These photos better represent the color:
The button was bought at Saybrook Yarn – I think it was Cindy that helped me find just the right touch!
And now that one sweater is down, I’m on the the next one, but it looks like a blob for now so maybe in a few posts I’ll have something to say about it. But I did start it for the SweaterKAL! I have also apparently found my sock mojo (in toe up socks! wow.) and I’m working on a test / sample knit for a sock club for the Unique Sheep and the test knit of the Malabrigo dress – I was hoping to be farther along in that, but I had trouble counting in the beginning. Slow and steady.
