Mithril. Now In Silk And Linen.

I've cast on for the Mithril Tee Shirt pattern.


It is, actually, being knit by me.  But Harry, my huge Maine Coon Cat, thinks it's his project.  I've never seen a cat so attracted to linen and silk.  You sort of get the appeal for them with wool, but this one is a little bit of a mystery.  He's very protective of it, though.


The yarn is a DK weight blend of 65% silk and 35% linen, Elliebelly Chemise.  It has everything I like about knitting with linen, but the silk makes it slide nicely through my fingers and it doesn't have the scratchy feeling linen can sometimes have when you knit with it.  This is my first foray into sweater knitting with this yarn — it's been a standard for scarves and wraps.  And I'm interested in compiling a list of pattern ideas for it, so please chime in in the comments if you have any!

    1. I’m so glad you like it! I’m enjoying it too.

      Unfortunately, Elliebelly yarn isn’t currently for sale, but if you stay in touch through either the Ravelry group or the blog, they’ll be information on when we start back up. We also have occasional giveaways or opportunities to knit with the yarn.
