WIP Wednesday and Yarn Along

I have cast on and being knitting my Tea Leaves Cardigan, such a lovely knit. I can’t wait to wear it. I am enjoying the colour, muted and pleasant with an Autumn feel. I used Vioset dye for the wool, combining a red brown and a few scatterings of grey. I hand painted the wool, which makes it easier to add more colour or less where you want.

Yesterday I finished my Rhino pattern, there is a giveaway for his pattern in the previous post.

Our mornings and evenings have become really cold, we lit our first fire today, but then as the sun rose, the day became glorious and warm.

    What gorgeous yarn for your tea leaves cardigan. It just whispers springtime… I used to dye in college and was always amazed at how much the color would change as it dried and what fabric/yarn I was using.

    I have been wanting to knit Tea leaves for a while, yours look beautiful. Also love the Rino.

    The yarn is gorgeous! That is going to be one beautiful cardigan!

  19. pinkundine April 11, 2012 at 4:15 pm #

    That tea leaves yarn is beautiful – it’s the colour of vintage tea parties, scones on the village green and silk handkerchiefs (does that make any sense at all?!)

    • Linda April 11, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

      Thank you so much:) (Yes, that makes complete sense to me)

  20. Kathleen April 11, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    Oh wow, that rhino pattern is gorgeous, really simple and perfect and inspiring. And I love the sweater so far, that texture (and the lovely yarn) is just beautiful.

  26. Rachel April 11, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

    Your cardigan looks so feminine and soft. I like the muted color. Can’t wait to see it done and on!

    Your rhino is brilliant!!!

    Ohhhhhh. That cardigan pattern looks just beautiful. And your yarn choice looks simply perfect. What a lovely cardigan you will have. I am just in awe.

    Your tea leaves is looking great so far! The colour is very different to what I was expecting from seing the wool full of dye but I love it. Im dying a cardigan I knitted the year before last, soon I can go rinse it, fingers crossed it turns out nicely.

  29. Lori ann April 12, 2012 at 4:23 am #

    that is really so lovely linda, such a pretty color.

  30. K April 12, 2012 at 8:26 am #

    Actually, our weather can be described in the same terms.

  31. Mia Foley April 12, 2012 at 8:57 pm #

    You’ll have to model this for us when its all done Linda! It’s coming along beautifully.
    And that rhino is just sooo rhino-like, as to be quite perfect : ) x

  32. Sara April 12, 2012 at 9:29 pm #

    What a pretty color!

  33. Cybele April 13, 2012 at 2:56 am #

    The Tea Leaves cardigan is in my favourites on Rav. I trying to pluck up the courage to try it. Can’t wait to see how yours turn out 🙂

  34. Leslie April 13, 2012 at 11:33 pm #

    Scrolling down through the comments, I can only say. everything I think about your project has been said.

    We lit our first fire as well only I didn’t move some things off the top of the stove so I almost started a real fire in the house, boys were most amused! Can’t wait to see the tea leaves finished, I went thru the Ravelry photos and some were stunning, others were not. Same for the Tappan Zee…..might have something to do with body shape so I am reluctant to cast on either of these although I really love them :-/
