Today we had our monthly knitting meetup with our local group, and I was finally able to pass on my secret gift knitting to the lovely aussiegirl, who took special care of me during my recent knee surgery.
Natalie Mitts from Knitscene Spring 2012, in Knitabulous 50/50 merino silk. I don't remember the colourway,but this was part of the Indian Summer sock club a few years back.
Beautiful yarn, and the pattern was a delight to knit. Thoroughly recommend both!
While we were having lunch, my friends were also very accommodating in getting a shot of my Seberg Sweater for me, which I wore (and still love love love!)
I am currently knitting monogamously on my On the Beach, in Cascade Sport - Navy & Straw colourways purchased in the recent wool frenzy. Ahem.
I'm participating in the Must Stash podcast May/Jun SweaterKAL, so I'm focusing with the intent of completing to deadline.
This too is a great pattern - knit in the round but with set in sleeves, not raglan. I'm really enjoying the construction method, and the colours are looking really great together.
At the moment it's a big old mess jumbled up on a circular needle, so here's a shot of the yarn for reference instead.
I love that mustard colour that is so popular at the moment, but it's not a great colour for me near my face, so I'm striping it with the navy, and keeping the navy on the neckline.
Despite being 5ply, this jumper is knit loose for drape, so it's on 5mm needles and coming along nicely. Hopefully an actual garment shot next post, which is looking a bit more promising after some solid work today at knitting group.
Finally, if you like podcasts, go check out Must Stash - it's a new knitcast hosted by Steph and Stacie, and they are doing a great job of it! I love their sensibility, their humour and they knit some really beautiful things. What's more, they are very organised and professional in the production of the cast - something that makes a big difference (to me, anyway). I find myself really looking forward to their next episode, and their Ravelry group is super-friendly and chatty.
