and modeled (thank you to Katie for the photos). First the ubiquitous #holdyourcowlup shot.
and then two more with the little monkey.
The pattern as written calls for three colors of a fingering weight cashmere yarn. I used Shibui's latest Twig (a sport-ish weight silk/linen/merino blend). With a slightly different gauge, a little less yardage and a much different fiber blend, I made quite a few modifications. And - for once! - they turned out great. I'm really pleased with the size and drape...and kudos to Joji Locatelli for the fabulous design and inspiration.
We're going to be sharing the suggested modifications in an upcoming newsletter, so for now, my notes aren't on Ravelry (which feels really weird, by the way! but here's the project link in case you're curious). This was an easy and fun knit and I hope we drum up some excitement for it at the shop.
