The new Twist Collective is up and includes my pattern the Vine Yoke Cardigan.

Once again I failed to take any photos before it left my hands, but I did take a couple of progress shots.

This lack of finished photos is hardly surprising given that I handed it over to Twist’s Art Director Irene at Maryland Sheep and Wool. The soothing, comforting garter stitch kept me company through screen filled days finishing up the layout for Whimsical Little Knits, anxious days waiting for those books to return from the printers, hand cramping days signing books, long days labeling and envelope stuffing, hectic days trying organise my trip, exciting days in New York and Philadelphia. And finally, in our hotel room in Maryland, I sewed on the buttons, used every towel we’d been given and laid it out on our floor. When Irene called me at the festival the next day I desperately asked if she’d still be there the following day, for my poor sweater, like everything else that weekend, was still wet. Luckily by Sunday, the cardigan was dry and Irene was still around, and so we managed a very sly hand off at the Ravelry meet up, joking that Kate would kill us if we accidentally held it up in front of so many knitters.

MDSW day 1-4
so many knitters!

Knit in the amazingly squishy Lorna’s Laces Green Line Worsted Vine Yoke is such a perfect project to me. Reasonably mindless, with just enough lace and short rows to be interesting, it’s ideal to pick up and put down, simple enough to knit at the end of a tiring day, perfect to fit into busy life. The end result is flattering and easy to wear and should fit just as naturally into your life and wardrobe. What journeys will you take the Vine Yoke Cardigan on?

With less than two weeks to go, we still don’t know what Brexit will look like, or whether it’s happening at all on October 31st. Like every other small business in the UK we’ve been trying to plan, without having much idea of what we’re planning for.
