Cream And Sugar

This week has been filled with waiting time.  A lot of waiting time. Time I should have spent on dyeing.  Time I spent on knitting instead.

Cream and Sugar Cowl by Alana Dakos.

This cowl is the perfect accessory as we head into fall, just enough to keep the chill out.

This cable design has five cable rows.  The other rows are effortless knitting.

This well-written pattern includes both written and charted instructions.

Chunky, cozy cables.

Cream and Sugar would make a perfect gift, but then again you may want one for yourself.

The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Lillian, colorway Topaz.  This 100% Superwash Merino yarn has the right amount of spring and bounce to make these cables stand out.  Truly a delightful knit.

Tomorrow I'll be in western Massachusetts for Fiber Twist.  It promises to be a beautiful day to be out and about.  If you're in the area, be sure to stop by.

It's that time of year when we can watch colors change right before our eyes.  The shift from green to red is my color inspiration for the week.

All shiny and bright.
