Cables are one of those things that I hate doing at the time, but love looking at afterwards. I’m still on my quest to knit through my stash, and I used some more of the brown and yellow cotton from Noah Sweater for this next project. The pattern is the Cabled Baby Vest from the beautiful Purl Bee blog by Purl Soho. It’s a really simple pattern, knitted in the round, with a button opening at the shoulder – always great for baby knits. I was a bit concerned about the size when I started knitting, as it seemed really big, but it worked out ok in the end.
Despite my best efforts to reduce my stash, I received a delivery from Wool Warehouse this week. So much lovely wool to play with! It’s all from Drops, mostly merino, and I’ll be using it for a bunch of new designs that I hope to be working on soon.
I also acquired a second hand mannequin, which will be really useful whenever I get the time to do any more sewing. The days of pinning things to myself in front of a mirror are over! I’ve got the Tilly and the Buttons book “Love at First Stitch”, and now that I’ve sorted out all my fabric I might just start working my way through the projects.
