FO Parade

As always, here are some highlights of some amazing projects completed in TUT yarns and shared in the TUT group. I know these posts are particularly enjoyed and I love sharing them with everyone. Who doesn't like some gratuitous knit wear images?

First up we have a beautifully stylish cardigan knit up by ClaudiaPetra in Silky Merino Fingering. This 75/ 25 Merino and Silk mix gives the garment a beautiful drape and was a great choice for the cardigan. The pattern is the Alys Cardigan by Bristol Ivy and is a paid for pattern from Quince and Company's pattern range. What I really like about this knit is not only the gorgeous way it drapes but also the crisp definition for the cable details. The colourway is 'charred', a deep grey with interesting highlights and tones that work well over large and small garments. Great work Claudia!

Next is Stringygirl's take on Veera Valimaki's 'Line Break' pattern: a beautiful swirl of a shawl.When I asked if I could share this FO, Stephanie admitted that she's obsessed with this FO and wears it almost every day. She also admitted that she already has another shawl planned in this base! It's always so nice to hear such a positive reaction to my yarns, thank you Stephanie. The yarn is the Heavenly Fingering which is a smooth, plied and incredibly soft mix of Alpaca, Silk and Cashmere. The colour used here is called 'After the Rain' and is ideal for such a solid wrap. 

The next FO made me gasp a little when I saw it, I adore the way it's been worked up, the colour choices and the photography to show it off. Indiecita used up every scrap her three skeins of Sumptuous DK to make this wrap/ scarf. The pattern is by Thea Colman of Baby Cocktails and is called 'Black Cherry Lambic'. The colourway used here is called Toast and makes me yearn for Autumn. 

The last FO to share this month is a showstopper. The colourway choices used in this version of 'Spectra' that Konela knit up are perfect for such a bold and graphic design. The colours used here are 'Jonquille, Mais Pas Gentille' and 'Charred' in Super Sock. Super Sock is a 2ply 100% merino base with lots of definition so would have been ideal for such a crisp knit. Great colour choices Kerryn

As always a huge thanks to the knitters who gave permission for us to share their hard work and beautiful images.
