Rialto Yarn and Leaf Tee Abundance

July 17 2007 – thisisknit

We are starting to see alot of finished knits lately which began with the Debbie Bliss visit. First of all, Jacqui's Sofia is finished (bar the sewing on of buttons)! I love it in this colour - we have a complete green obsession going on lately! While the rest of us are wishing for the sunshine, Jacqui can't wait for it to get colder again so she can wear this all the time... jacqui-sofia.jpg Yvonne came to Knit Night last week sporting her Gabrielle Hoodie, also from the Rialto pattern book, and it looks amazing on her :) Teal is another favourite colour around here... She is also modelling a recent'y completed lace scarf from Hipknits Cashmere and holding a too-shy-to-be-photographed knitter's curly scarf made in Noro Silver Thaw to match an already complete Tithe cardigan (from Noro Unlimited). That's one project-intensive photo! yvonne-gabrielle-hoodie-and-jacqui-sofia.jpg Twink also brought us in her slightly modified Sofia - she added a contrast crochet edging in Teal to her Grey cardigan. It edges the hem, button bands, neck and cuffs and gives a really crisp finish to the garment. Gorgeous work :) twink-sofia.jpg And there's a whole lot of Leaf Tee-Shirt happening too. Aileen stopped by on Sunday wearing her newly complete version and we had to take this "snap" photo! We've been comparing notes on our various modifications and I think we both plan on making another using the best of both. I'm thinking a black version with three quarter length sleeves... aileen-leaf-t.jpg leaf-times-two.jpg

    Those photos of the latest in knitwear are great. Must get over to the shop soon – might do a T.

    I am so jealous of the finished Sophias – mine, in chocolate brown, is knit but not blocked or sewn up due to visitors over the past few weeks! Jacqui, the weather is almost cool enough now :-).
    The other modelled knits also look wonderful – need to get knitting again.

    I was hoping you forgot the pictures, I look overdressed, to say the least :)

    See you guys in 2 or 3 weeks!
