WIP progress report

I’ve been working in the round lately 😆 About two days ago, I started a fast-moving circular cardigan with a fun mandala pattern on the back. I’m using Lang Sunshine Wool Addicts yarn, a sumptuous, glossy mercerized cotton. It has a braided structure which contributes to a nice stitch definition. This yarn has been in my stash for more than two years, waiting for its purpose – I actually won a bundle of this yarn, knitting needles, and pattern books from a Lang giveaway on Instagram. Thank you again, friends at Lang Yarns.

The yarn is worsted in a gold/mustard shade that I think has been discontinued. There are some beautiful jewel tones in the collection at this writing, though, if you’re in the market for a top notch cotton yarn that’s perfect for summer garments.

My second update is the Ukrainian leaf mandala/doily pattern, a much slower-moving piece using mercerized cotton thread. Same material, but handles so much differently as I am often pausing to untwist the working strand. Even though it’s fussy, I love this small work. Can’t wait to show you the finished article.

My posts are coming fewer this month as I finish the semester, but I project a glut of finished pieces and photos from my upcoming summer adventures back in California. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The circular cardigan looks interesting, and the colour is lovely! I do like the Ukrainian mandala design. You must be pretty excited that your holiday back home is nearing! It will be lovely to see your Californian photos!

    1. Thank you very much! I love this color, too. It’s hard to capture in a photo, though – really deep gold hue. Yes, looking forward to going back to the US after so long. I will surely post once I’m there😃🙏🏻❤️
