past and future projects






i went to a bookshop yesterday and looked in knitting books and thought that few people has made anything as timeless as elizabeth. last weekend was spent knitting another february sweater which the recipient's mother preferred to a debbie bliss matinée jacket for her daughter. this and the february sweater inspired pillbox hat is made of debbie bliss: cathay. a strange yarn. but it came out okay. i am a wool lover. cotton is so secondary to wool.

my next project is an alpaca fairisle yoke for the afore-mentioned mother, my lovely niece. oh, we zimmermaniacs do a lot of knitting for nieces. the main colour will be camel, and the yoke colours are to shades of brown, a dark olive green and a light pink.

it is my second go on an alpaca sweater for this particular niece. last time i met a man and somebody else finished the sweater... hopefully the next man i meet finds a knitter particularly interesting......

  • The cardigan and hat are lovely.
    The fairisle sounds beautiful too-does alpaca wash well?

  • LOL! Men have a way of interrupting things when we meet them.

    Such a lovely set!
