French Girl Knits / Fitted Knits

Kristeen's (aka The French Girl) new book came out last week. It is AWESOME! There is something in it for everyone. All of the patterns are seamless, which makes it accessable to those knitters who have "seamphobia".

I test knit Niobe for her, about two years ago. I can't remember all of the details of my yarn choice, needles, etc. Love it! I know I used Rowan Kid Classic and Rowan Kidsilk Night held together.

I have had Stefanie Japel's Fitted Knits in my stash forever. I just haven't gotten around to knitting anything from it. My friend Jennifer bought me the most awesome George Michael tank top for my b-day, and it just needed that perfect "something" to go on top of it.

Pattern: Two Toned Shrug from Fitted Knits by Stefanie Japel

Yarn: Louisa Harding Kashmir Aran #12 & #11
