Making Things Kino Knits profile (affiliate link)
Honey Cowl by Antonia Shankland (free on Ravelry) on US in Shibui Knits Baby Alpaca (discontinued) (100% alpaca, DK weight) in Ash and Shibui Knits Silk Cloud (60/40 mohair/silk) in Pool. Part of my #makenine2018. Second time I’ve made this – knit the entire thing on a plane and then left in on there (I talked about it in Episode 004. I also talk on that episode about finishing my son’s Flax sweater – which he’s still wearing for the 4th winter!)
Heartstring by Joji Locatelli (no longer available? on Ravelry) on US 5 (3.75 mm) in Rainbow Heirloom Sweater (100% wool) in Killer Flamingo colorway. Contrast in Skeinny Dipping Journey Worsted (100% merino) in Royal Arse colorway. Part of my #makenine2018.
Lots of other single socks – feels very disorienting!
Will get back to my second MKAL shawl design next week.
