FOs

Finished Objects that is.

I finished the Wrath project from the Seven Deadly S(p)ins club. Woohoo! I’m so glad I am keeping up with this (all 2 projects so far). The invoices for the next shipment (due early July) were sent out this week…I wonder which sin this one will be?

Also finished is Faolin, the pattern is available from Thicket. I used the specified yarn, Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed. Very nice! This is a lovely yarn to knit, hope it wears well.

I received the Cascade 220 that I ordered to knit the February Lady Sweater. But before the yarn arrived I had doubts. Would I wear a dusty rose coloured cardi? I thought about overdying the yarn (which I may still do) but it wasn’t really the colour but the design I had doubts about. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great design, but perhaps just not for me at this stage (maybe later).

What I really need is an easy to wear (throw it on, don’t have to worry about buttoning, draping etc), soft, comfy jumper (sweater). So, I searched Ravelry & found a pattern by an Aussie designer whose blog I used to read a while ago. The pattern is Black on Black, knit on 8mm needles & requiring only 3 skeins of Cascade 220.


So I cast on a couple of days ago & (knitting Autumn Rose as well) the back or front (as they’re the same) is nearly done.
