A New Start!

The 14yo has asked for a sweater!!  We looked on-line for quite awhile and she finally found something she loved.  The Dubline Cardigan by Marousa Gallagher.  It is lovely! It has a hood, it’s long and she likes the sleeves!  It also has lots and lots of cables which I love!


This is what I have so far on one of the fronts.  The other one is a mirror image of this one.


The cardigan is knit in one piece and the sleeves are added in later.  I have already finished the sleeves, but as they are just stockinette stitch, I did not find them very interesting.

Knitting cables is so much fun! I love the manipulation of the stitches and the texture they create in a piece of knitted work.

Scarf Finish!

I wanted to start a new weaving project.  The only problem was that I still had something on the loom.  Nothing like a little incentive to get the weaving juices flowing!


Washed and ironed!!!


A closeup of my hem stitching.  Not perfect, but it will do.  I can’t wait for the weather to get a little cooler so I can wear it!
