This is true more than ever now that I'm living out of a single box of clothes in our temporary Baltimore apartment. No, haven't closed on the house yet.
Because I'm living in a warmer climate now, I'm designing some warm-weather knits. The first, knit in Miss Babs Yet and Habu Silk Stainless, is the Weathered Pullover:
Yet is a blend of Merino and tussah silk, so it's great for warm weather. As soon as I swatched it I knew I wanted to use it for a garment. I like using yarns that are more obviously suited to shawls for garments because I like fine yarns but hate knitting complicated lace. It's also a bargain. So much yardage for the price.
The pullover is reversible; you can wear the translucent panel created by the silk stainless as the back:
Or as the front (check out the skirt; it's one of my five favorite garments, purchased in Berlin in 2003):
Or you can omit it and work the panel in the same yarn used for the other side.
Interested? You can read more about the design here, and you can purchase the pdf pattern for $6.
I leave you with a picture of the Official City Pen of Baltimore.
Okay, not official, but these things are EVERYWHERE.
