Knitter’s Notebook – with Rosee Woodland

The Knitter’s Commissioning Editor Rosee Woodland shares her three latest knitting projects with us, revealing her current passion for autumnal shades. 

Easyknits Deeply Wicked 4ply yarn in Harvest Gold

“I adore Kitman Figueroa’s complex lace shawls and scarves. I’m knitting ‘Missie’, a straight scarf, using Easyknits Deeply Wicked 4ply yarn in Harvest Gold (see above). It’s a fabulous colour and pattern.

Cobble Hill Pullover by Erica Patberg“I’ve finished my ‘Cobble Hill Pullover’ by Erica Patberg from Interweave Knits, Spring 2012.

I love its construction (you can wear it both ways up and back to front!) but I didn’t want a heavy sweater so, instead of the recommended chunky alpaca yarn, I held together three strands of fine yarn – Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, Habu Linen Paper, and Habu Tsumugi Silk – to create a DK weight mix, which I knitted on 6mm needles.

I also left off the cowl neck to create an airy boat neck.”

Ravelry project bag“I was excited to help Ravelry celebrate its fifth birthday by voting for the design for a project bag to celebrate the milestone (along with 117,056 other knitters!).

My favourite design wasn’t chosen, but I still bought the winner, by Elloknits, as it’s fab. Get yours for $8.50 from www.ravelry.com/minimart
