knit in Scotland as a Christmas present for my mother.
TLC Cara Mia on 5.5 mm needles. This was a fantastic knit, the cable pattern is really intuative. This is the smallest size but knit at a larger gauge. Stretches to between 40 and 45 inches in the body, there is no waist shaping so this size is consistant throughout.
I am so tempted to cast aside everything and devote myself madly to this sweater.
I finished this at the beginning of the month, but it has been way too hot to model a wool vest until now. I like the vest but I think it is not the greatest choice for my shape. Maybe it would look better over a long sleeved thermal t.
The pattern and the super light and fluffy hadspun yarn were well matched and made for a quick, fun knit. And yes, I know that my shirt needs to be ironed.
Two slubby plies of wool and mohair blend that I hand dyed, wrapped gently with a hand dyed silk thread strung with siver glass beads. 72 yards, bulky. Maybe for sale?
A so called ugly batt from High Prarie fibers. Spins up light and beautiful, yet strangely like dryer lint. I love it. 220 yards of light worsted weight, about 1/8 of the huge bat spun up.
