Aeolian shoulderette

I had to take a break from the baby knitting frenzy and knit something "grown up". When the spring 2009 Knitty was published, I knew I was destined to knit the Aeolian shoulderette. It took me one week, and this is what I ended up with.

(Yes, the picture, once again, leaves a lot to be desired...)

I absolutely love the yarn. It's Evilla 8/2 that I got from Tinttamarelli. The colors really aren't properly displayed in the picture. They're much more beautiful, the dark parts are darker, and the lighter parts are brighter. I really like how they almost follow the pattern. A dark part in the middle, lighter around the "leaves", dark nupps and a bright red border.

I'm not keeping this one, so I might just have to knit another one...

So pretty! It's hard to imagine that it could be even prettier in real life than it is in that picture!

Lovely! I'm so glad to find you again: your old website hasn't been updated since 2004, and I was a bit worried for you. See that you're a Raveler, too. Hurray!

That is gorgeous! I love the colorway you used and how the light and dark sections came out - really pretty.
