Next up on my pattern do-overs is the Leaf Stole. What was once a worsted weight, warm and snuggly wrap, I have tweaked the pattern oh so slightly with a fingering weight yarn to become the most luxurious thing you’ll ever have around your body! Brambleberry Yarns Loganberry base was amazing to work with. Half silk, half washable merino, not only does the stitch definition blow my mind, but the drape is just a dream! I’ve found that anyway I sling it over my shoulders it falls perfectly. You can bunch it together and wrap it around scarf-like, or open to display the full width and show off the stitch pattern as a stole. The cool weight of the silk is just what you need in summer evenings spent outside, and with the amount of fabric you get once all said and done, you should be able to cosy up with someone else too! Here’s the details!

I am SO SO SO grateful to have been introduced to a new friend, Krista, these past few weeks. Not only because she’s a complete nutcase, but she is also the most amazing photographer! It was impossible for me to whittle the shots down to just a few… so here’s some more.
Check back later on in the week for more information about the yarn used… and there might be some more photos…
