Up, up and away!

I am sorry I took such a crappy picture of the Moebius last night. I didn’t realise it was so crappy until I looked at it again this morning. Here is a better one, courtesy of our fine weather. It’s getting its first outing today!

I picked up the remaining necessary teal Cashmerino yesterday and couldn’t resist casting on for the Puff Sleeved Cardigan this morning 🙂 I can’t wait to really get stuck into this one!

So Lisa loaded me up with a pile of Laines du Nord’s Cashsilk for a new pattern. I already have another one in the works, but I have a feeling that what I have planned for the Cashsilk will be a really speedy knit. Here are the colours I chose.

See that sheen? It’s gorgeous. It’s 50% fine merino, 25% silk and 25% cashmere. Yummy! The cream is my main colour and the green is for a contrasting edge. I’m really excited to see how this will come out.

Yesterday I also picked up a Laines du Nord book (book 5). I don’t usually buy the pattern support books, mostly because there isn’t anything in them that I want to knit. This book, however, was a real surprise. I like alot of the patterns. This one was an obvious choice for me.

But I also liked the retro feel of this one. I think both of these would knit up really nicely in the new Debbie Bliss Rialto. I just love the colours it comes in, and there’s great stitch definition.

Enough dreaming! I’m heading up to Donegal with Alb for the weekend. Fingers crossed the weather will hold!

  1. The Moebius is beautiful! I like the colors you have chosen. If you manage to get everything shown knitted, I will consider you the most amazing knitter I’ve come across in a long time. 🙂

  2. That moebius kicks butt, and I can’t wait to see the white and green turn into. 🙂

    Hope your weather holds out. We just got 2 inches of snow. At least the previous snow was 99% done melting, so there’s really only 2 inches of snow on the ground. A month ago, it would have been 2 inches on top of the 10 that had been there for a month and a half already!

  3. Moebius is quite lovely! Great color choices!

    I like the white and green together too!

    OH MAN is that Lanes Du Norde pattern great! GREAT! Thanks for posting it!!!
