I’ve made some real progress on this cardigan. The body is done and the sleeves are going on. I decided to knit on the sleeves instead of knitting 2 separate sleeves and sewing them.

YouTube Preview Image     To create a double boucle you will need a bobbin of slub yarn ( if you haven’t created slub yarn yet you can find the tutorial here). You will also need to make that slub yarn into spiral slub ( tutorial video here), then  you will need some silk thread .I like to to use a 60/2 silk thread. I usually buy it on cones and dye it to match my project. After you ply with the silk thread you will need to either cable it with another yarn or back upon itself.

The Luxury Cashmere/Silk Cowl is a lacy but textured sweet knit. A great pattern for that small skein of luxury yarn.

The Faggoted Bamboo Scarf has a lovely lacy textured pattern. I really like the silver button with it. The bamboo makes it light and drapey. Here is the pattern link.

The Keyhole Textured Scarf is a gorgeous  pattern with bumpy, structure the keyhole portion of the scarf is worked evenly into the patterning.

The Playful Peace Silk Cowl is a simple, reversible almost woven looking texture. This was great fun to create and knit.

This Banana Squash Bag wasn’t exactly for the kiddies with a bottle of vino in it. It would also make a great project bag or small purse. I love the gourd shape!

 

The girls look so serious in the pictures, we actually had a terrific time!!

You may have noticed from last weeks pics, that I have decided to knit this sweater body in one piece. So the body is coming together quickly. I’ve already split for the armholes and am working the the neck and shoulder shaping.

I do love this color as much as the heathered green. The wool/alpaca blend is also very nice. Sometimes makes me wonder what would happen if you crossed a sheep with an alpaca. hmmm Shepaca :0

Well it official I’m on  a sweater craze. The success of the green sweater has hit me hard so I thought I’d try my hand at a new cardigan. I love the heathered (is that a word) purple color and have a sweaters amount of this yarn so why not?

The yarn Berroco Cuzco ( of course this awesome yarn has been discontinued). The colorway is 9684. I would call it a heathered  plum.  The weight is bulky and I am using  10.5 needles. I do love the fabric created with this yarn and needle combination. I was trying to come up with a name for my new sweater. I dub thee Plum Crazy Cardigan (as I must be crazy for making another sweater).

As you can see I was taking a knitting day in my pj’s. I do this every once in awhile and it feels like a treat.

More to come later.
