My love affair with big chunky cables continues!
The photos here have a golden glow because I took them last night without a flash, and the artificial light has wreaked havoc with the actual color of the piece.
This is the actual color of the yarn (photo lifted from the Elsa Wool website — it’s the medium grey woolen-spun worsted weight Cormo here). It is grey, but a grey with a brownish cast to it, and I think it is a lovely color. It shows the cables nicely, too. If you look at the photos of my work in progress from the last blog post, you’ll see that they are far more true to color.
This project is called a robe, but I am going to use mine as a coat. It is a bit longer than knee-length on the model, and I’m lopping a couple of inches off the length. I started by doing a bit less ribbing, and I am doing my a-line decreases at a slightly faster rate. Right now my back piece measures around 21″ and I think I will knit to 29 or 30 inches before the armhole shaping.
While I knit, the Little Prince relaxes.
I love this photo of him, basking in a golden glow.
