We love browsing through photos on Ravelry. It can be so inspiring to see what other folks are working on and better yet, what they’ve recently finished. This week, we want to share some of our favorites so that you can enjoy these knits as much as we do. You might find your next project among some of these ideas!
Our friend Jenna Lee from nearby Massachusetts joined the Fancy Tiger Knitalong and created a Wolf River pullover designed by Melissa Schaschwary using Spinnery Weekend Wool. We love how the grey ragg color adds visual texture enlivening the sweater’s stockinette sections. It looks wonderfully wearable with almost anything! Beautiful work Jenna, and thank you for sharing with us!
Kelly from Texas is an amazingly prolific knitter. Her project page will delight you, as it did us! We discovered her Cascade cardigan designed by Amy Herzog and knew that you’d want to take a peek.
Kelly’s sweater is such a perfect fit because she made use of Amy Herzog’s Custom Fit program that generated a version of the pattern specially tailored to her body measurements and gauge. We’ve been continuously delighted by Amy’s designs, and the one of a kind ability to make them a perfect flattering fit is such a treat.
Kelly created her cardigan with Brickhouse Mewesic, for a 3 season sweater that is a classic. You’ll want to browse through her other photos to be able to appreciate the crisp lacework on the back that makes this project such a stunner.
Our friend Charissa played with four different yarns to create a gorgeous pair of Baa-ble Mittens. Her sheep look picture perfect with their realistic coloring.
The feet and faces of her darling flock were created with our Jet Black Mountain Mohair. What a fun pair of mittens; who wouldn’t want a handful of sheep to help keep their fingers toasty warm? And speaking of which…
Olga created a breathtakingly delicate shawl with yarn that was spun here at the Spinnery as a custom project for the folks at Catskill Merino Sheep Farm in upstate New York. She knit up the Echo Flower Shawl designed by Jenny Johnson Johnen. Her project page features a series of photos that follows her yarn from the flock to the finished work of art.
Straight from the cover of Winter 2016 Knitscene, Ellie created a Slopes Cardigan with Spinnery Weekend Wool. She opted to create a version of the sweater exactly as it was depicted and we love how the elegant simplicity of the pattern compliments the rusticity of our woolen spun yarn.
Next, we have two sweaters created with our Cotton Comfort. This 80/20 blend of wool and cotton is a pleasure to work with. It’s soft hand has a wonderful bouncy elasticity thanks to the high wool content. It makes a comforting breathable fabric that is perfect for 3 season wear.
We think you’ll agree that the tincanknits Prairie Fire pullover looks as though it would be as much fun ton construct as it will be to wear. Dotty created her sweater in crisp and classic navy, and we love how the tweed and lace work together. Beautiful work Dotty!
Michele’s Arcade pullover was designed by Isabel Kraemer. She selected silver Cotton Comfort and has created a sweater that looks fantastic on her. She indicates in her project notes that the pattern was well written and a pleasure to follow. We want to cast on for similar sweaters without delay!
Last but certainly not least is a project dear to our hearts because it was created as part of our Groundhog Day Knitalong that concludes next week on the 16th.
Carrie created a lovely version of the Brezel hat designed by Svetlana Volkova, using our Vermont Organic yarn. She is flirting with the idea of dying her hat and we look forward to seeing how it will be transformed!
