Three Down; Eight To Go
After several false starts (I think I taste-tested at least 4 patterns with this yarn including lace, cables, and a combination thereof), I finally hit on the solution: Let the yarn speak!
And it did!
This is Moda Dea Silk 'n Wool Blend (85 wool/15 silk) and of course, it's no longer available. It held up remarkably well through several trips to the frog pond.
Pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple Neckdown Summer Cardigan (221) . I modified by adding 2" to the sleeves and a little to the length.
The fabric is lovely. Buttons are from my stash.
Color in this close-up is closer to reality.
And in case I feel like I haven't knit enough purple lately, I've started Sweater #4. A Wonderful Wallaby. In eggplant!
