Today is the day to cast on!!!! Look at this yummy little collection, all ready and waiting to get started on a new knit; a sweater! I love the look of these colours together and can't wait to get started. I spotted the sweater kit on the Tangled Yarn website and loved the look of the pattern. It's a loose fitting pullover with overall texture in two different stitch patterns and offering variation in colour blocking and graded striping. It will be a challenge as it is knit from the top down and is seamless. There are only fourteen pages of pattern instructions to get to grips with!;-)
The yarn is Coast by Mabel and Ivy. Its a light fingering 3ply in 55% merino and 35 % cotton. Looking forward to knitting with it!
As luck would have it, there is a KAL over on Ravelry, on the Tangled Yarn group page, so there will be plenty of support and encouragement on offer along the way, I'm sure.
Sadly, I musn't allow myself to cast on today, as I am racing to complete a little hoodie for Evie. We are off up to Manchester to visit our three beautiful granddaughters on Wednesday and I really want to complete it before we leave. I have the hood and both sleeves to go, before commencing the dreaded seaming. Wish me luck! Hopefully, I'll be able to show the finished garment next time:it may even be modelled by Evie herself!
