My current work in progress:

Veronika Cardigan, designed by Shannon Cook, knit from YOTH Daughter in the Black Truffle colorway, using U.S. size 8 needles.

Yakity-yak

I finished my top secret stealth project, so can now start knitting purely for fun. So here we go!

This is a cardigan called Moth, designed by Amy Christoffers. Kind of a loose “cocoon” kind of shape. I’m using a very cool yarn!

This is Rowan Softyak DK in the “Plain” colorway. It’s 76% cotton, 9% nylon . . . and 15% yak. The addition of yak makes it very soft. The construction is sort of chain-like.

While it is DK weight and the pattern calls for sportweight, I’m getting exact gauge with the needles called for in the pattern — U.S. size 5.

The design is worked in fisherman rib — a soft squishy stitch that has a very compressed row gauge — it’s 38 rows to 4″!

But it’s a fun knit, and I’m not in any hurry.

Loki is just chilling!
