An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
It's a really good, classic design - but I think the sleeves are the milestones - or the mountains, however you look at them! My son is well over 6 feet tall and his sleeves just go on and on! He told me last time that he really has enough sleeveless things and wants a "proper"jumper - I've been putting it off for at least 18 months now.
☺ lucky for me Jack's arms aren't too long! You'll have to do some mental gymnastics somewhere along the line.
The cabling is beautiful in itself but I can't get over the "plain" parts- is that called seed stitch? The whole thing is a wow!
It's moss stitch, two rows the same where seed stitch changes every row.
Lovely, you're a very neat knitter Jane. Years ago now, when I knitted, I used to really enjoy knitting Aran patterns! Thanks for showing.
Splendid!! I insist that Jack is one lucky fellow!! Bet he knows that though. ;)Katie V in NC
Beautiful work. He is going to love wearing this.
I love this, I used to do a lot of fairisle and cable knitting in the past but not any more. I find the wool yarn so expensive now. I used to buy it in hanks and the jumpers I made for Tom lasted for years.Brionyx
Spinning the wool cuts down the cost, providing I don't cost my time!
Jack is a lucky fellow! Lovely work....
It looks wonderful!!! :)
This is beautiful, Jane. I envy you your knitting skills.
I envy you your painting skills!
Simply gorgeous knitting.
Fabulous !!! Great knitting, especially on a light colour - hat's off to your skills :-)
The jumper is looking good, it is always nice to get one big section finished.
