I believe the next few entries on the blog will be catching up on the pictures I have missed.
Today shall be pictures of the Boathouse Row. The white Boathouse Row was my first, knit out of Cascade's discontinued bulky 50/50 linen-rough alpaca yarn Fascination. It was a pleasure to knit. The resulting shawlette is warm and fairly light, but sheds like crazy.

I liked the ivory Boathouse so much, I decided to knit another one. This one, I wanted to able to wear next to my skin, so I double-stranded a denim yarn by Elann and Debbie Bliss' pure silk. Both are dk weights. The resulting shawlette is soft and smooth, with a nice weight, and beautiful drape.

Ready for cool weather, or warm now!
