Among Stones

Among Stones is a collection of 10 designs by Carol Feller, the garments and accessories are all incredibly wearable and beautifully photographed. I love the colour palette Carol has chosen, it ties in so well with the nature and weathered stone at the locations for the photos. One of things I really love about this book is that Carol is modelling many of the pieces, she makes them look so stylish and effortless.

If you'd like to enter the prize draw to win a digital copy of this book (generously donated by Carol), leave a comment on this post telling me what your favourite pattern from the book is and I'll pick a winner on 24th October.

The Tourmalite shawl is one of my favourites, it has an interesting construction and the generous size is perfect for the colder weather. Combining a colour changing yarn like Noro with a solid yarn is really interesting, this shawl has larger blocks of solid breaking up the thinner Noro stripes and the little stocking stitch wedges (that remind me of pleats) among the garter stitch.

The Liathite Jr is very appealing to me, I've got two boys who are woefully under knitted for and this hoodie would be perfect for both of them (I'll start with the one for the biggest child just in case he does that stupid growing thing while I am knitting and it can be used by the smaller one instead!).

I've got to talk about the Pyrite socks, these are sized for children and adults (I don't often make socks for children due to the aforementioned stupid growing thing) and they look great in both solid and variegated yarn. The colours in yarn used for the woman's version make me very happy:

  1. I'm loving Gabbro! I seem to be drawn to adult jumpers knitted in fine yarn though and we all know how long it takes me to make a sock! Mayve I should stick with the boys hoodie. Im loving the cables.

  2. Ooh difficult to choose! I'm torn between Dolmite and Liathite Jr – I think Dolmite has it, looks so floaty and cosy.

  3. My favourite is Dacite. I love the design with the option to wear it buttoned up for extra warmth, and the use of different stitches to give it texture

  4. Definitely the Liathite Jr - Josh is always asking when am I going to make him a jumper (and it took me several goes to correctly type in the name of the design!)
