Black Water Abbey Yarns

Sunday I got to spend the afternoon at an open house for Black Water Abbey Yarns. I bought this Celtic Tote pattern and 3 skeins of the Bracken colorway. I also got a cool Celtic Knot button to add to the tote.

Although I hadn’t planned on buying anything else, I made the mistake of checking out what Stacey & Genia had purchased :) The each bought the yarn and this pattern for the Jen Cardigan.

I didn’t buy any yarn yet, since I’m not exactly sure what colors I want to use. I’m thinking about Dark Charcoal (2nd up from bottom, left side of color card above) for the main part of the cardigan and Pink Heather (5th down from top, left side) or Iris (2nd up from bottom, right side) for the cable detail on the sleeve. You can see the colors a little better here (scroll over yarn for color names).

I love how simple this cardigan looks! Here’s a better image of the sleeve detail:

  1. BWA has some pretty colors. It’s hard to chose, but I do love the Pink Heather color. Very pretty. I just can’t get over the scratchy nature of the yarn, but that’s just me.


  2. I love the tote and the button–that will look great when it’s done. The cardigan looks great too–have fun deciding on colors, from the looks of the color card you can’t go wrong with any of them :)


  3. Nice sweater pattern. I love the cable detail on the sleeves, very original!! Looks like a braid. You know, you could get away with a color that you really like (but may not normally wear) by havining a neutral color for the sweater body and then something really exciting for the detail!

    I was so bummed to miss the open house, but I bet that everyone had fun.
