poldark is back!

i love masterpiece on pbs. and not just downton abbey. i love them all – the classics, the mysteries, the contemporaries.  and others do to because every time a new show starts on masterpiece, ravelry is flooded with new projects inspired by these shows.

are you watching poldark? i didn’t watch it the first time they did it (1970s). i don’t think that i was old enough. but i’m loving it this time.

look at these patterns!

look at this shawl, demelza’s song by kalurah hudson. knit out of a worsted weight yarn. i’ve got some jojoland splatter dash that might be just the thing! this shawl would be great for this fall/winter. simple design. great yarn. elegant look.

wanna challenge yourself? lace with fingering/sock yarn. since sock yarn doesn’t count in your stash i’m cover there! someone told me once that sock didn’t count in your total stash count and that was all i needed to buy sock yarn! like i needed more help! i say it all the time – lace is not that hard. and if you are using fingering weight yarn, it take half the fear out of it. (lace weight yarn is half the fear!)

or play with cables and beautiful yarn with a light halo! this yarn has a little mohair or angora in it and gives a nice softness to the cables. i won’t normally recommend yarn with a halo for cables (you want good stitch definition for cables) but it really works here.
