My current work in progress:

Newlyn Jacket, by Jane Gottelier, knit from Rowan Original Denim, using 3.25mm and 3.5mm needles.

Moth Cardigan

Here is my progress for the week on my Moth Cardigan.

It’s an odd construction: you knit each side separately and join the center back seam. It’s a bit of a leap of faith to knit as I can’t figure out too far in advance what’s going on. It’s a new pattern as well, with very few projects on Ravelry, and a couple of comments saying that things don’t seem to match u. But there was a pattern update correcting an error in number of rows in a part of the pattern, so I am hopeful.

Besides, I have my little helper at my side.


  1. Sounds very interesting, am looking forward to seeing how this comes together 🙂

  2. What an interesting design. You are very brave to try it. Just keep it away from porchlights! 😉

    Can’t wait to see how it turns out for you. I favorited this on Ravelry and haven’t stopped thinking about it. I’m really awful at setting in sleeves so I haven’t made a sweater in 30 years (when I was a size 10 and sleeves seemed to work so much better then!) I found myself itching to try this.

    P.S. There is a book waiting to be written on knitting sweater sleeves. 🙂

  5. Mary Lou Keenan says:

    I have a feeling that you will be knitting a raving success! Can’t wait to see the finished product.

  6. Cathie Jones says:

    I’m actually intrigued by your knitting bag/yarn-holder-thingy. Are they separate pieces? I think I would love to have a thingy (technical term) like that to hold my working yarn.

  7. Barbara Runcie says:

    It’s beautiful and I keep coming back to look at it. It looks like the back is shorter than the front. Is it?

  8. You can’t go wrong with an assistant like that!
