Finishing Ariann was a perfect way to cast off 2006. She is warm, cozy and very chic...a sweater to wear and love all winter.
Ariann kept away the chilly mountain air during our photo shoot at Solitude’s Moonbeam Lodge. Bonne Marie knows how to design a fun to knit sweater, with easy finishing, fabulous fit and real runway chic. Once the last stitches of Ariann were cast off, the only thing left to do was weave in a few ends, and since I use the spit/splice method to start a new skien, there were very few ends. After blocking, which one must do with lace of any sort, the yarn softened, bloomed nicely and Ariann's lace opened up to show off the unique patterning. If I could sing, I'd sing loud and high praises of Beaverslide's wonderful yarn. This is my favorite worsted yarn, hands down.
If I could sing and dance, I'd throw a gala for Bonne Marie, a designer for grrls who love style and chic design in their knits. Every pattern of hers that I've knit and has ended up being worn and loved. And, just so you know, I've knit many Chicknit patterns.
