Love the Browns!

You all probably know from looking at my shop that I love to dye in shades of brown. Today's project posts are a treat for me, with three projects to share all in various browns.

First up, here is a shawl knit by Hazel using FF Sportweight Cashmere in the Exotic Wood colorway:



It's the Flower Basket Shawl by Evelyn Clark from the Fall 2004 issue of Interweave Knits.



Didn't Hazel do a lovely job?! Here's another shot of her daughter modeling:



You can see more of Hazel's work on Ravelry. She's KnitandRead.

Next up are two pair of socks knit by Marjorie. The first are knit with FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Sublime colorway. The pattern is the Wavy Socks from the Knitter's Book of Yarn. Gorgeous!



Marjorie also knit a pair with the same yarn in the Multifarious colorway. You can find more of Marjorie's work also on Ravelry. She's mmarker.



These are from the rpm pattern by Aija Goto. The pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry. (If the designer's name sounds familiar to you, that's because it's the same "Aija" of the beloved SockPr0n blog and the maker of the wonderful knitterly things over at Zero on Etsy.)

Beautiful knitting by both Marjorie and Hazel! Thank you so much for sharing your work.

As those gorgeous projects illustrate, nobody dyes browns like Deb! Whenever a new FF brown colorway comes up, I have to add it to my yarn collection!

Dear Deb,
I went on Ravlery and couldn't find
the sock pattern made by Aija Gotto. Can you give us a clue as to
what to look for? I looked under
designers and under the pattern name, but came up with 0 results.
Your colorway is very pretty and I
would like to try that pattern with
your yarn.
Thanks

In answer to the question above about the free download pattern on Ravelry, I found it by going to "People" and seaching for "mmarker." Under her projects, you'll find the rpm socks and can click on that project and where it says "pattern" you'll find the link.

I also saw just now that the pattern in Ravelry also says that it was published at knitty.com in the Summer '06 issue.
