I have some FOs.
pattern: Einstein Coat from The Knit Stitch by Sally Melville
yarn: Classic Elite Paint Box
needles:Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US10 & Brittany BirchÃ‚Â US8
cast on:Ã‚Â Aug 2ndÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Aug 23rdÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â completed:Ã‚Â Aug 31st
notes:Ã‚Â I loved knitting this sweater.Ã‚Â The pattern is so simple but the look is timeless.Ã‚Â Bug loves the sweater but pointed out it needs pockets.Ã‚Â At some point I may addÃ‚Â a couple of afterthought pockets, ala Elizabeth Zimmerman, but not right now.Ã‚Â Right now I am going to enjoy the finished sweater.
And what would a month be without a dishcloth, or three . . .
Left to right:Ã‚Â Garterlac dishcloth in Sugar n’ CreamÃ‚Â Westport, MDBD in Sugar ‘n Cream Cornflower and Jute, Garterlac dishcloth in Sugar ‘n CreamÃ‚Â Rosewood (this one reminds me of neopolitan ice cream)
