My current work in progress:

Freshet, by Irina Anikeeva for Brooklyn Tweed’s Wool People 13, knit from Rowan Softyak DK in the Steppe colorway, using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.

Denim Fun

I’m working along on my Newlyn Jacket. I finished the back on Friday.

It is extra long because once completed and washed it will shrink 10% or so.

I am currently knitting along on the left front:

I did the pocket finishing because I didn’t like leaving the stitches on a holder and letting the hole gape open while I knit. After working across the entire back, it is a relief to be knitting a side front, where to rows go much quicker!

The yarn, Rowan Original Denim is, as you may well know, rope-dyed indigo so that the sweater will fade like a pair of jeans every time it is washed. It also means that some dye comes off during knitting, but it is not too bad since it is a lighter colorway to begin with.

And as usual, my little supervisor is on the job!

Don’t get any indigo dye on my fur, please!
