Quince & Co.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the DOWN to the yard knitting yesterday. After weaving in all the ends, I had more than enough to finish but I'm glad I did not have to spit join a bunch of ends on the cast off row. (and you KNOW I've been There before)

The sweater is blocking and I cannot wait to get a lil' photoshoot going.

I spent the better part of this past month knitting that sweater and now that it's finished it's like a whole knitty world has opened up to me! It's perfect timing, too, with the new Knitscene, Twist Collective and now the new Knitty out!  Plus, knitting a whole cardigan on US2s will make knitting my next sweater on US8s like I'm knitting with US 15s.

As you may or may not know, I am a wee bit obsessed with the Belfast Hoodie and subsequently Carrie Bostic Hoge. (remember Camilla?)  So much so that I didn't think twice about what yarn to choose and went straight for the Quince & Co. Lark.

There are so many colors to chose from (hello, 37!). It's almost too much. I had such trouble deciding. I kept going back and forth between the Q&Co. page and Ravelry comparing everyone's photos of their yarn.  There were so many color interpretations. I went ahead and ordered one skein of the Chanterelle but when it arrived I was a bit "eeh" about the color. Since I would not be detered, I went right back and ordered a few of my favorites to chose from.

What's ironic is that seeing all those colors together made me choose the Chanterelle all over again! It's good to know my gut is not steering me wrong. It's a perfect neutral and will go with so many different things in my wardrobe.

Chanterelle Wins!

Just from the touch of it, Lark is squishy and soft. I am very much looking forward to knitting it up and seeing how it lies. It's swatch time as I wait for the rest of the yarn to come in.

PS. Have I told you lately how much I love my fellow knit bloggers.  They inspire me So much.  Example A: Knitted Bliss – You rock with your capelet video! and B: Flint Knit's Amazing Goodale. I am now obessed with you too. Thankyouverymuch.

    Oh yeah, that Goodale colour rocks!
    “I’m glad I did not have to spit join a bunch of ends on the cast off row” – I’ve been there too. 🙂 This made me smile.

    I LOVE Quince & Co. yarn! I used Chickadee for a hat pattern and cannot wait to use their yarn again for so many different projects. I like the chanterelle colorway – it is a nice neutral that will go with so many things.
