Knitting - finished project and plans for next.
Anyway, it's now finished so on to the next thing...
.....this necessitated a day or two immersed in pattern books with yarn spread out everywhere.
I wanted something lightweight and fitted, suitable for wearing indoors, rather then out, in the current cold weather. I have a huge stash of 4ply Jaeger washable wool - but only 5 balls at most of any one colour, so I was looking for striped or fair isle.
I've settled on re-working this Rowan pattern from Magazine 28, using 4ply instead of double-knit, 5 colours instead of 4 and making a cardigan instead of a jumper! The swatch looks good I think but I may also alternate the colours round to use them up evenly.
