A new sweater design!
Hey guys! I hope there are still folks out there. That was quite the unintended absence. I find blogging a little like exercise — if I stay with it, it is easy and happens on a regular basis. If I take a break for any reason, it is really hard to get going again. So, let’s end the year with getting back on track. How about that?
Well, have you seen the newest issue of Knit Simple magazine? The Winter 2012 issue? It is a really nice issue, and I am not saying that just because I have a design in it! It really is worth checking out.
Back to my design…
This scoop neck pullover is highlighted by a braided cable. It is the perfect first cable project, but also a fun knit for the more experienced knitter. It is knit flat and then seamed. Don’t be intimidated by this! It makes a great finish. And the yarn? Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted. If you haven’t used this before, go buy some now. Lovely stuff — good yardage, soft as can be, washable, and great colors!
Next time… We will start going through the pile of new small project designs sitting here on my desk waiting for unveiling.
