Love Your Library, vol. 14

That's right folks--my Riverbank is done! And it knit up just as fast as the first one almost a year ago. Super simple, beautiful texture, sophisticated unfussy results. LOVE. And since I have more of this yarn in different colorways in my stash, I'm going to keep a good thing going and cast on for another one!

Pattern: Riverbank (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: madelinetosh merino DK (colorway: firewood, used about 1.5 skeins)
Needles: Size 7 Addi's
Mods: Skipped the eyelet rounds on the second repeat of the sequence. Just repeated the previous stitch patterns I liked the most and played it by ear. Also didn't switch to smaller needles for the ribbing sections.

It's another month, which means a new topic!

May: Time to Purge Do you have patterns you're holding onto even though you know you'll never knit them? Books you never open? Time to do a critical look at our physical and electronic libraries and purge the items we are no longer interested in. (short-time only free patterns, I'm looking at you!)

How's your personal Love Your Library challenge going this week?

  1. your new cowl looks gorgeous! And purging old patterns, such a good idea. I have a tough time getting rid of magazines, because they are so small, but if I'm honest, I know all sorts of them can go.

  2. Ha ha, I have lots of short-term free!! Like the idea, will try to find time to purge.
