New Threads FRIDAY!



b.lime Love 2006

Shaw Collared Jacket
Pattern: Simply Soft
Designer: Debbie Bliss
Yarn: Crystal Palace *Merino Frappe*
Color: #088 Split Pea & #020B Sage
Gauge: 18sts/24rows over 4"
Needles: #7 & #8
Type: Fusion

Fini! The b.Lime Love continues at Chez Chic
heading into the weekend with more than a little Romance...

Higher Knitting Education continued for me on this project - the collar was very challenging and I admit to being of very little faith at one (ok, two or three) points but just did what the pattern said to do and VOILA! Form and function prevail - this design incorporates a genius use of short-rowing - a standing ovation for the wonderful Ms. Bliss!


The collar drapes beautifully and indeed, is a true shawl!

I believe this yarn could be an acquired taste. This brushed merino is not as warm as mohair but yields a fabric that is a cross between that fiber's fuzzy goodness and felt. It is very soft and lightweight - a pleasure to wear.
