WIP Wednesday #20

Good Morning Everyone!

Last spring I was in a not so local yarn shop and struck gold in a hank of Pagewood Farm's Kissi yarn in the Prism colorway.  It is a beautiful (and expensive) yarn which reminds me of stained glass.  I have seen these beautiful soft blues with flecks of red and green and yellow in many European cathedrals.  Anyway, I had to have it but at the time could only budget 1 skein.  I will admit that this skein went immediately into the "Core Stash" level of my stashdom where it should have remained forever -- as an inspiration yarn.

However, late last week I ran across a beautiful cowl pattern being offered as a test knit.  It was pictured in a beautiful shiny green yarn and it was titled Seaglass.  My mind immediately went back to the hank of Kissi in the stash and its fate was sealed.

Monday I received the pattern and cast on and it is nearly half completed as of this morning.

So, without further ado, I give you today's WIP:

It has been a crazy fun knit and I will provide more details on it (and a Ravelry link) when it is completed...

  1. Love the chose very nice colors..

  2. I agree. Stained glass and sea glass both pop into my mind when I look at this yarn. I think it's a perfect match!

  3. That yarn is beautiful!! Your cowl is going to look amazing when it is finished.

  4. Love, Love, Love the yarn..and I just commented on someone else knitting the seaglass. I think I might need to try this one out this summer of knitting... I can almost feel it from here!!
