One Shade of Grey!

Goodness it's been a while but enough of that! I just wanted to show you my latest finished WIP. Actually I finished it a couple of weeks ago but have only just taken pics ....

I needed something for those "in-between" days when it's too cold not to have a sweater but too warm for long sleeves. I wanted cables (natch) but I also wanted something that wouldn't drain my brain whilst I was making it. This was perfect.

The pattern is on Ravelry here so pop over and download it. I think it's one of those items that I'll make again and again (perhaps with cable variations) and will become a firm favourite in my wardrobe!

I love the pattern detail ....

the collar ....

and those cables ....

Currently on my needles is Vertex which I'm doing in a burnt orange. It's coming up beautifully but it's slow progress ..... I'm not good at straight stocking stitch .... I tend to fall asleep!!!

Other news is that we've finally sold our house!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The YAY cannot be loud enough I can assure you!! Come December we'll be moving about 40kms down the road to a little town where my boys are at school so no more long commute. It will be sad to leave the countryside but I'll be so pleased to be near shops, doctors, vets and general civilisation!!!

Til soon.

  1. Looks gorgeous, Laura! You are so clever to tackle such complicated patterns - I start to panic even thinking about knitting something as complex as this! Plain stocking stitch and then only with a following wind is about as much as I can manage! I'm glad for you about the house move - I too am a slightly reluctant country dweller - it's lovely on one level but I know exactly what you mean about feeling a bit detached from civilisation and missing it.
