I cast this on last week; it's a pattern I've had for a while, knitted in 4 ply wool, but I'm using some of a humungous cone of duck egg blue I acquired several years ago, with pink roses; the bottom and collar are lace trimmed, It will turn out much better than the picture promises, in my experience of knitting with cotton.I've done blocks of pink for the roses, and will Swiss darn the white details and green leaves between, as I find cotton's not good for intarsia. Back and left front completed, nice to knit, not too taxing so far.
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
