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!
