Guest Post by Lone

This week we received a very exciting email from Lone, who used to work in our Stirling shop, showing us her latest finished project:

Lone designed and knitted this amazing cardigan - what an eye for style!



Below a photo of latest finished project - at last! Been on the go for two years!
Somehow always got put to the bottom of the knitting pile.

The story is that not long after starting at McAree Brothers, I soon realised that I would never reach knitting a garment with all the yarns I would like to try and knit with. Thus an idea was born: buy a bit of all of them, get colours that could work together and put them all in one garment. Seemed a good idea at the time but my, what a lot of ends to sew in!

Yarns used:
Rowan All Seasons Cotton
Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK
Rowan Fine Tweed
Rowan Panama
Rowan Tweed DK
SMC Extra Merino Big
… and to finish off, since my Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK colours had been discontinued (drama!) ( don't leave things on the needles for two years), Patons Extrafine Merino DK.

Phew, glad it's finished and it fits!

This is such an inspiring idea, as there are always so many yarns we're dying to try out and there just aren't enough knitting hours in the week. And as for the pattern inspiration? "Ehhh made it up as I went along after the initial idea..."

Lone, you're our kind of knitter! 💜
