Gathering Intentions - done!

I am so happy to be finished with this sweater. So I can start wearing it, that is! I already love it and can tell I will be wearing it until it falls apart. It fits just right.

Gathering Intentions, from Inspired Cable Knits by Fiona Ellis.
Mission Falls 1842 Wool, 007, Cocoa
Mods - I left the i-cord off of the sleeve so I can wash my hands without it dangling in the sink.

Cabled Hats


I've recently completed 2 Capitan Hats .

Si' Capitan
This one in Baby Alpaca Grande by Plymouth for me.

Capitan Hat #2
This one in Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky for MIL, as I really didn't like the color, but the yarn was a gift, so for a gift it went.

I'm in a cable mood lately, I have 2 other projects OTN.

Cable-Down Raglan

Although it's a little bit late, I finished it before the weather gets warm. And I am proud of myself of knitting this sweater. I don't really like cabling, but after looking at the FO, all the cabling time is worth it.

Yarn: 6.5 skeins Misti International Pima Cotton/Silk in purple

The yarn is very soft, but it does have lots of lints even before I wash it. As for the pattern, I love the top down method since I don't like seaming. It only requires a little seaming underarm.

Finished Cabled Socks

I have finished 2 pair of socks with cables. The first are my Aran Socks. I knit these in Louet Gems Sport wt yarn in Cream. This pattern will be available at The Loopy Ewe probably next week.

The second pair is the Mini Pretzel Twists I knit these in Wollmeise 100% Merino in the Zenzi colorway

Still working on the two sweaters, well every now and then anyway.
