Its January . . .its cold. ..and all I want to do is snuggle under a warm blanket in my pjs and knit something warm with cables. This pattern is Aidez which is free and can be found on ravelry. Its been around for a while and on my list of knitting desires. After finishing my Christmas knitting gifts I decided to pull out the stashed yarn and cast on.
Unfortunately this is not my first attempt. I previously knitted 18 inches of the back and then realized the sizing was not going to work for me. I gave a quick sigh and then pulled it out to start again. Oh well right?? I guess I really don't mind if the finished project is a good fit. Its worth it in the end.
Yarn is Cascade Ecological wool. I like the look and the feel of the yarn and the price. . .great price point for sure.
I am please to say that I am past the 18 inches and into new knitting territory. But looking back at the new product after pressing it for sizing. . .I now know I made the right decision.
My next dilemma will be the sleeves . . .from what I hear they knit very slim or narrow so I might need to go up a sizes for the sleeves. Hmmm . . . I still have time to ponder.
