Decision making is really not my super skill. And with knitwear design, there are a lot of decisions to make. Stitch patterns, numbers of repeats, yarn choices; it can all get a bit overwhelming. One of the choices to make is about the type of accessories or garment that will be the finished object, and for the Klee Collection, I decided to cheat this decision and do both.
This was a particularly easy decision with the Angelus Novus design, as the cardigan begins life as a shawl and then continues on. The Blacker Swan used in the design is such a lovely soft and warm yarn that once I started knitting with it, I just carried on until I had half a small blanket. It is a simple but still quite luxurious. The shawl can be worked to any number of repeats and so made as large or as small as preferred.
I am pleased to announce that Blacker Yarn are one of the generous sponsors of the Klee Collection knit along, which begins on 1 December and will finish on 1 February 2016. You can join in the pre-KAL chat here and declare your intentions if you would like:)
