And now, the programming.
I know we do a lot of knitalongs, but each time I am amazed at how all that simultaneous casting-on, which seems so random at the start, eventually leads to a beauty pageant of handknits that all rhyme, somehow.
The fact that people virtually sat together and kept each other company through all the trials and tribulations and little moments of discovery, is one of my favorite things about knitting.
To drink it all in, take a look over in the MDK Lounge, where there are separate topics for each of the Carol Feller designs in Field Guide No. 14: the Transom Cardigan, Twining Wrap, Trellis Top, and Arcade Cap. Or check out the Instagram hashtag, #RefreshalongMDK. There’s a lot to see. You might be inspired to get a head start on your favorite Autumn 2020 garment.
Here’s a sampling in Carol’s winsomely named Nua Sport palette to whet your appetite:
kelley (motto: more markers) is whipping up her transom cardi in the earthy shade of nua sport known as capall.
here julie’s FO (shade: Bare necessities), letting the sculptural details shine
Mary’s Transom Cardi (shade: harvest moon) in layout mode.
Sandra’s Twining Wrap (shade: Angry Monkey) basking under a clear blue sky.
christine’s trellis top WIP pops in Pink Flamingo.
you’re not just imagining things: Pamela knit an Arcade Cap and a Trellis top in Figment.
The reviews on Carol Feller’s yarn, Nua Sport, are uniformly raves. It’s extraordinary. I can’t wait for it to be cool enough to wear it again.
