This is by far the most colorful and stripy sweater/cardigan I have knitted so far. This is the almost finished back of the Nevis cardigan, and so far it has been very straight forward knitting. The yarn is Rowan tapestry in three different color variations, I’m not quite sure how it will turn out with the colors and stripes once it is finished, but I really like the feel of the yarn though. Main thing is that hubby is really happy about the colors and since it in the end will be his, I think for now that is the most essential.
For the moment I’m in a process of considering casting on for a second project, to date I have only committed to one project at the time, however knitting a warm cardigan in wool in the middle of summer without the option to switch to something a bit lighter doesn’t really makes sense, does it? Well at least that’s my justification for casting on for a second project. The actual problem is deciding which project to be the second project??? For the moment I’m considering several alternatives, among others the Febrary Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne and the Seraphim Shawl by Miriam L. Felton or perhaps my first pair of socks? I guess in the end it will depend the yarn I get my hands on, I’m so looking forward to go yarn shopping soon.
Yes, this is what I found about two minutes after I had finished taking pictures… Guess hubby will have to fight Kenzo to get his cardigan, he really seems to like it 😉
