Happy New Year everyone - I hope it's fabulous for you all!
The New Year got off to a good start round here. I (fingers crossed) managed to book Felix and I into the classes we wanted to attend for Knit Camp 2010 yesterday evening - after a false start yesterday morning due to a confusion between a.m. and p.m. Still it's not like a wanted a lie-in after New Year's Eve! I even managed my first FO of 2010.
[not really a great detailed picture of the item in question but it's a lovely shot of my new coat, and of the little birdy brooch which Kate sent me for Christmas!]
[that's more like it]
Yarn: British Breeds Yarns Bluefaced Leicester DK (just short of one skein in Lilac)
Needles: 3.75mm long circular needle (magic loop)
Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rows in pattern.
It's not really enough of a pattern to write up at the moment but I've got some idea for it and if it works out I'll write up a pattern then.
In the meantime I've been knitting a pair of rather sweet little driving mitts. These just need a little pearly button and a right hand friend to be done.
Can you tell I'm a little bit obsessed with this two stitch cable on stocking stitch pattern? I'm really keen on incorporating it into an adult sweater based on Cirrus.
