At the weekend I finished the cushion I was knitting. Feeling quite pleased with my newly learned cabling skills, I thought I would share!
When I stitched it together I wasn’t too cautious so the honeycomb pattern is slightly off centre but when you are knitting with such lovely coloured wool, it’s difficult for anything to look very bad. Here’s the back:
I chose some natural wood buttons as I liked the way the colours contrasted. For some reason (silly iPhone) the close up pictures look more green, but the true colour is as above.
A close up of that lovely honeycomb pattern. When I’m more proficient, I’d like to knit it into a jumper or cardigan.
Pattern from Jenny Lord’s Purls of Wisdom.
Cable skills – done!
Enough pictures for now – just looking at the wool is making me feel positively overheated in this muggy summer weather the UK is currently experiencing.
New, ambitious (for me) project coming tomorrow.
