New Knits, Take One

It has been a while since my last knitting post, which doesn’t mean there hasn’t been knitting in the works. Despite my vow not to work multiple projects simultaneously, I don’t seem to be able to help myself; it’s better, I’ve decided to have a long-term project going as well as one or more quick little items for that all-important need for instant gratification to be fulfilled. Therefore, I have a few WIP’s to share.

I promised my husband a new sweater for his birthday last year, but it didn’t happen for a variety of reasons, the main one being that I couldn’t find what I considered the perfect yarn for the sweater I wanted to make. Now that I have it (Blue Moon Fiber Arts “Twisted,” color: In the Navy), and the pattern (From Simply Beautiful Sweaters for Men by the Tricoter owners Linden Phelps and Beryl Hiatt – the project is “Larry’s Cabled Cashmere Pullover”), I’m on my way.

Of course, I had to make certain mods to the pattern. The shadings in the yarn color seemed to demand fatter cables to really make them stand out, so I am doing a six-stitch cable rather than a four-stitch cable, and I am structuring them a little closer together.

More tomorrow!
