You may have noticed that things are especially quiet around here. There are a few reasons for this and it's not because I suddenly hate blogging, trust me. One, it's summer, so naturally I'm spending more time outside and less time knitting. Two, I've jumped into the world of test knitting and I LOVE it! Test knitting wasn't even on my radar until a few months ago, but now I can't get enough. One of the drawbacks is that I generally can't share what I'm working on while I'm knitting. So, less time knitting + having to be a little secretive = not so much blog content. Luckily, today I can share my current test knit and I'm really excited to do so.

I'm testing Alicia Plummer's new design, East End. It's meant to be a beach cover-up, but well, I'm not really a beach person (let's just say that sand and me - we're not friends). Alicia originally styled her linen version as a t-shirt. Loose, relaxed and effortless. I fell in love! I asked if it would be okay for me to use wool for my version and she said yes. I'm using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in Fragrant. It's bright and pink, and I'm happy.

PS. Don't forget to go enter the final blogiversary giveaway here. Tomorrow is the last day. The winner will be announced Friday, so stay tuned for that post!

  1. Wow! That is gorgeous! Will you link to the pattern once it's made available?

  2. Lovely little summer top! And it'd be awesome in linen as a beach cover-up. I'd be too nervous to test knit, so it's awesome that you're willing to do it!

  3. Ooh, pretty! More pink! Loving it!

  4. Lovely pink! I like the design. How fun to be a test knitter!
