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!
