Knitting

wip wednesday – cove cardigan.

…I had planned to use one of these photos to get back on track with wordless wednesday, but I’m just too excited about this project not to share a bit more about it!

first up, the yarn. it’s madelinetosh pashmina in the cove colorway, a blend of blues, browns, grays and greens that reminds me of winter in the low country. I know it will look great with jeans…and black and maybe brown and gray, which means it will go with just about everything I own ๐Ÿ™‚ the yarn is a lovely blend of merino, cashmere and silk that is a dream to knit, even on size 4 needles.

then, the pattern. heidi kirrmaier’s fall away cardigan. I’ve knit another of heidi’s patterns (peasy. twice) and it was both well-written and well-fitting. this is another top-down seamless design, but it’s published by madelinetosh, not heidi. and according to ravelry, I’m an “early adopter” – less than a dozen of them knit so far. which means there are some kinks to work out in the pattern (nothing that major, but I did rip out the first twelve rows or so and re-do them once I figured out the yoke shaping). I’ve written to madelinetosh and hope there will be a revised version published before I convince any of my students to knit it!

and finally, how it’s coming together. (quickly, too – it’s just two days of knitting!)

a few more details on ravelry. here.
