Continuing in our parade of old crap I’ve knitted, here is a Rowan design from the early ’90s. Don’t remember which Rowan book it was in (of course) but I believe the pattern showed the main color as red or burgundy. I knitted mine in Harrisville shetland wool. I’ve always though this was a very cool sweater. It’s got a knitted lace edging around the bottom and the sleeves. Seen better in a close-up:
Oh, and there are cables between the colorwork panels.
Before I forget, Miz Izzy sez “Hey.”
Guess what I got in the mail yesterday? Click here. Color cards from Ozeyarn (not to be confused with OzYarn, who have given me wonderful service) in Australia. You can order color cards on their website. The yarn looks and feels very yummy! Temptation . . . temptation . . .
I did a wee amount of knitting on Fulmar, and more on my Knitty project. I have a difficult time working on two major projects at once — I always want to forsake one of them for the other. This is the cause of alot of internal strife!
Someone asked yesterday if I have a cedar chest for my sweaters. I do. But only about a tenth of my sweaters fit in it. I’ve got a bunch on a shelf in a walk-in closet that’s got some cedar panelling in it, and the rest are stored in those large plastic stackable drawers. Not the best solution, but it works . . .
