Hi friends, and happy Friday! I have a new batch of favorites to share with you today.
This week, I’ve been thinking about fall/winter knitting. And apparently, I’ve got slightly oversized shrugs on the mind — I realized I keep favorite-ing sweaters with a similar shape. It started with Ronan by Andrea Mowry from the most recent Wool People Collection. And, like the rest of the internet, I fell hard for Veronika when it was released earlier this week (also: apparently it contains instructions for modifying for petite frames! I love these sorts of slouchy sweaters, but they can be a bit tricky for us shorties.) And, after hearing lots of discussions about Marie Wallin’s Fair Isle Club 3, I finally checked it out for myself … the combination of colorwork with the slightly cropped boxy shape has me swooning. I don’t think the club is in the cards for me right now, but I was happy to see that Wallin has a similarly shaped sweater in her soon-to-be-released Fair Isle book (you can spot it in the slideshow).
Not ready to think about heavy winter knitting yet? Quince and Co. released two lovely pullovers this week out of Tern, their scrummy, lightweight wool silk blend. I love the side detail on Cecily Glowick Macdonald’s Galaxie and the beautiful simplicity of Larimar by Isabell Kraemer.
A new episode of my favorite podcast Fruity Knitting came out this week, and they featured the amazing House Dressing in new releases. How amazing is that?! Besides being in awe of all that knitting, it’s knit in my favorite shade of yellow. Maybe one day I’ll tackle my own version …
I know I’ve been thin on the ground on food lately, but I came across some yummy summer recipes this week that I’m excited to try out:
- These chimichurri chickpeas are on my must make list this weekend!
- And I’m also digging this tomato, garlic, and corn (corn?!) pasta.
- There’s endless inspiration in this collection of 21 creative salads from the New York Times.
Alright, that about does it — hope you have a great weekend!
