A Soon To Be New Project

I recently saw a post on Instagram from a knitter who was sharing a lovely start to her new project, a design called Cusp. 

When I first saw the photo I honestly thought it was by Norah Gaughan.  The reason I assumed it was by Norah was for the uniqueness, the construction and the cable work.  But after finding the pattern on Ravelry I was pleasantly surprised that this beautiful creation is bOlga Buraya-Kefelian, a very creative designer who also designed Apex, another sweater in her collection that I am head over heels in love with.  If you love Norah Gaughans creations, you will love Olga's as well and I encourage you to take a peek at her patterns online at Ravelry.

Ravelry Designer Page:  A hexagonal bubble popover is cozy and easy to wear as well as boldly stylish. Knit in Shelter, this playful garment is worked from the center out, with spines of delicate cables delineating each segment and forming a criss-cross that makes Cusp surprisingly flattering. When the back and front are complete, the live stitches are united from the wrong side using the Joinery bind-off. The sleeve openings, collar, and hem are edged in double rib. The sample is shown in a tinted neutral — Postcard — but Cusp would be elegant at the ends of the spectrum in Cast Iron or Fossil, too.

Needless to say I promptly purchased this pattern and will be using my stash of Shelter in Hayloft that is full of fall color and undertones.  I'm excited not only to knit this gorgeous design but to finally knit with this beautiful yarn spun in the US from US farms.

I hope to cast this project on very soon and be able to wear it this winter here in Phoenix or on road trips my hubby and I plan to take.

Until next time ~ be creative!
