Knitting – Cables and Lace

Knitting – Cables and Lace

During the last couple of weeks I have been knitting furiously. I have really relished trying new patterns. Of course knitting takes much more time than sewing or crochet for that matter. Neither of my knits are finished yet but I love the patterns so much I want to share the work in progress with you. I have been making an effort to stretch my knitting skills lately and try more complicated patterns. For myself I have been knitting this lovely lace cardigan made in Rowan Cotton Jeans, Jute. I love the yarn and the pattern and can’t wait to wear it.

I have also been knitting this cable cardi for a baby boy who is due in about six weeks or so. I hope I manage to finish by then. I’m sure a concerted effort will make it happen! I am using Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo for this one and it has a lovely silky texture.
