Cayuga

sarah's cayuga-1 Hello – it’s Sarah here!  Since I started working for Ysolda a few weeks ago she’s been asking me to to hijack her blog every so often to show you what I’m knitting.  I seem to be getting through quite a lot of projects at the moment, mainly because lots of them are small and unlike Ysolda, I don’t talk with my hands!
I’m doing lots of Christmas knitting, but I managed to knit myself this cute hat and mitts set, Cayuga by Connie Chang Chinchio knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca in just a couple of days.  I’ve decided that I need more of my knitwear to match so picked up some yarn on the tour to knit these as soon as the pattern was released.  The band of the hat is knit back and forth and then stitches picked up along the edge to knit the top, which means I could measure it exactly to fit and as a result it’s lovely and snug, and not likely to fly off on my dog walking adventures.  I love the twig and berries pattern round the brim of the hat and it works its way beautifully up the edge of the mittens too.

Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
