See you in a bit

This is a scheduled post as when you read it I'll be on my to the seaside. Hopefully I'll be back with some progress shots of my socks and sweater WIP's, or failing that maybe some photos of cycle rides, walks and beaches :-)


Ooo I tried the sweater out on Mr Soaring Sheep, it's looking promising so far, and at least he'll be around for more fittings for a while! I'm hoping to get the sleeves separated by the end of the holiday so I can then just knit, knit, knit on the body.

I decided I'm going to make up some sort of shawl collar using short rows. The neck is open enough that Mr Fussy Mr Soaring Sheep doesn't feel restricted and it solved my issue of starting the cables in the right place

Speaking of cables, I love how they're knitting up :-) I'm using this pattern for them. I love braided cables lol.


Right, I'd better get on with the last of the packing instead of procrastinating! See you later everyone

  1. Sweater looks great! Love the colour ... and that smile! A garter stitch 'roll' collar would also look great and wouldn't restrict. Have a great holiday! xxx
