I started knitting a new sweater a couple weeks ago before we left to go on vacation with my family – the kage sweater. I was inspired to do some colorwork after seeing Alphonoso’s color blocked Kage so I decided to do navy and grey stripes with a coral color block at the shoulders (although I was apparently subconsciously inspired by my Catch All Bag because the stripes are virtually the same color and size – I realized that after I was already 10 stripes in!). I’m using shibui linen in suit, sidewalk and poppy and it is a very interesting yarn to knit with. Very springy with a chain ply, it’s knitting up cloudlike into the lightest weight fabric (which is kinda important since it’s rapidly approaching the triple diget temperatures here in central Texas).
And if you can’t tell, I’ve finally caved and started instagramming.
