New knitting project

Now I can knit in the round and cable, for my next project wanted to knit a proper item of clothing and learn shaping, so I am making this classic cardigan from a collection of Rowan patterns.

I’ve chosen a lovely aubergine colour of linen / viscose yarn which I bought in the Liberty haberdashery sale. The staff are so helpful in there by the way. They answered all my questions patiently and it was a little oasis of tranquility in there after a rather frantic Saturday sale John Lewis!

Hopefully it’ll be ready by autumn…

Wish me luck!
