Silky Cables Progress

A little update on my latest sweater:

This is a pleasure to knit for many reasons. I almost never repeat a pattern but this one’s worth it. It’s great to be using up stash – as some of you may know, I’m not kidding about the shop’s worth of yarn – this silk / wool blend is great to work with, the colour is soothing and the knitting is almost mindless. A big boxy knit, drop shoulders – so, no shaping save the neck and version one is still a “weekend round the house favourite”.

Silky csbles ~ Start


The antique blue shade didn’t show up well under evening living room light, hopefully next picture will be a little more accurate. This project is speeding along, should be dividing for the armholes today. My other projects are scowling from the basket but I still maintain that “Circuit Knitting” nets me far more Fo’s than staying with one project from start to finish 🙂

    • It really does. The blend is 20% silk / 80% wool and that small bit adds a sheen and weight that is wonderful. So sad that Elann discontinued this yarn, it’s one I’d buy more of!
