With cloudy skies rolling in, I decided to start a new warm weather wrap, Range by Andrea Mowry, which knits up quickly on size 8 needles. My color combinations: Tahki’s Vermont (50% Alpaca/50% Merino) and Lana Gato’s Class (80% Merino/20% Angora). A fun knit using short rows, and my new favorite Brioche. Sure to be fun!
I recently started a new sweater pattern from Drea Renee Knits: Spin Raglan by Andrea Mowry — a quick worsted weight sweater that will be perfect to wear in these fall months. Using Tahki’s Tara Tweed, it’s a super soft tweed yarn to snuggle up with!
