As per usual, I have about five major projects on the go; I rotate through them: wet day projects, dry weather projects, physically demanding projects, slobbing-on-the-sofa projects, thinking hard projects, fibre projects, gardening projects, decorating projects, Really Important And Urgent projects (though that classification is liable to change on a whim). And I think about blogging every single one of them, then am whisked off on a puff of distraction before I manage to whip out the laptop (or the camera).
Over the weekend, though, I was very, very focussed on the front panel of my current knitting project: the Square Necked cardigan from Rowan Studio 11 (Ravelry links). The back is already complete, and I’ve been thoroughly charmed to finally make it onto the interesting bit(TM):
The yarn is the stuff I bewailed hugely way back when. (Auugh! Where are all the photos from my old posts?! – never mind, another project…) I was always quite pleased with the spinning, and it still stands up to scrutiny. Heathered blue-purple with hints of green, it’s interesting enough to make stocking stitch fun and engaging, and calm enough not to overwhelm the cable details.
The eagle-eyed may spot that this is a subtly different cable detail to the original pattern – more on that in another post.
