A Little Tilt

Here is my latest endeavour. The Interweave Knits "Tilted Duster" (Fall 07). I was surfing Ravelry last week and spotted this queued on a members list and immediately became intrigued. Usually when this happens I know I am going to be knitting it.

So I called out to my peeps, Shameka and Kim, to see if either one of them had the magazine because somehow, I missed this one in the store. They both came to the rescue, but it was Shamaka who I got the magazine from the fastest. Perks of working with her.

The yarn called for in this pattern is Berroco Peruvia. I was looking on one of my favorite online yarn stores (www.jimmybeanswool.com) to see the color choices and cost. I was going to wait to purchase the yarn but I had a free shipping coupon that was about to expire and I just couldn't let that happen. My colorway choice was Caliente. It is hot hot hot. I felt like I wanted a red to make me feel all alive! I think if you enlarge the picture you'll be able to see the pink heather of this yarn.

On Sunday I did my gauge swatch to make sure I had the proper needles for the project. It was perfecto!

I've been busy on other knitting fronts so I don't feel bad for starting the sweater back last night. This will be my portable knitting until I get to the skirt. Don't worry. There are some FOs that will be making an appearance soon and good progress on another project. Stay tuned!


  1. Nice! I started a sweater using the Berroco Peruvia I bought on the yarn crawl with Shameka. Mine is a heathered pea green. Ain't is wonderful to knit with?

  2. I'll be glad to see this on someone else other than the cover- I don't know whether I'd want to knit it or not. Are you going to MDSW? (bltsatallteldotnet)

  3. I've been tempted to knit that one myself, I love Norah Gaughan's designs. I can't wait to see how it turns out for you.

  4. oops, the above commentee is me, Misa. For some reason I was logged on with the Huz's account.

  5. Hmm. Funny. I seem to have missed out on this issue as well. I did buy the new spring one today though. This is a bit of a different knit for you, but I can envision it here. Cool. Definately love the yarn you're using. Sizzlin'! Excited to see what FO's you having lurking around, too.

  6. Another sweater huh...I agree with MB about it being a different knit for you. Color is definatly you though. Iam sure it will look fabulous once your done...as usual :o)
