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!


Such lovely fabric. I love the close-up color!
It did work very well!
