ConnieLene – KnitDesigner

Thank you Angelia Robinson

Apr.20, 2016

for putting out a request for test knitters and for taking me on board to do just that.

It has been many months since I picked up my knitting needles and there are reasons for not doing so. So many that I thought a wee list could be useful to me to remind me to get my hat on and get knitting.

  • It has been summer here in Miranda
  • We have had a great deal of fruit and vegetables to process
  • We are planning to move our garden onto a more permaculture basis
  • I have had a wee heart event – all good now but on beta blockers and blood thinners for ever
  • I burnt my hand quite badly and couldn’t knit, or garden, or process the food we have grown
  • For a time I have been just too tired at the end of the day to think of knitting
  • and as I said it has been summer.

    The Kloss Cowl test knit was a nice easy piece to knit and the pattern has an easy rhythm to it so once the first 12 rows after the rib were completed it flowed on easily with the marker being a reminder for colour changes.

    Kloss Cowl

    Here is the link to the Kloss Cowl pattern by Angelia Robinson in her Ravelry store. It is a perfect pattern to be very creative with stash yarns, and it is an easy fun knit.

    This cowl below is my test knit. I haven’t blocked it as I do like the texture and motion of it unblocked. But that is just my taste.

    I have not used slip stitches in my own colour work knitting at all so I was just a bit curious about how it would work and I do like it. So just maybe I will incorporate slip stitches in my own work. You will just have to wait and see.

      Thank you, ConnieLene! You did a wonderful job, and your cowl is beautiful. The unblocked texture is very rich – like ribbing. I hope you enjoy wearing it when the weather turns cool.

      Dear Angelia, it is so long since I have been here that I didn’t know that you had commented about my / your cowl. I did enjoy making it and thank you for your generous comments. It is coming into summer here so I won’t be wearing it. In fact it is so nice I might give it as a gift to my daughter who loves cowls.
