An FO and WIPs

Finally, a reliable connection window for pictures! I'm desperate for a blogging fix and am posting from work ...sans chit chat...some yarn and needle details will be updated later.




Pattern : Thorn and Thistle, IK Summer 2006
Chest Size: 38"
Yarn: Catania Cotton
Amount: 6.5 x 50 gm x 135 yds
Needles: 3.25 mm
Modifications : moss stitch on collar and sleeves instead of crochet

Meet Ogee, from Jaeger Handknits No 4, knitted in Japanese Novia cotton. I love the peacock green, there's a subtle sheen to it, but the yarn is a little hard on my fingers. Regg assures me I'm going to love it even more after washing.

This is Truffles (the colour of Knit Picks Swish actually), Drops design 85-23. It's for JS, my son in Melbourne.

Lovely FO's! I specially like Oggee and the peacock shade is very unique. You make me miss knitting with cotton! ;)
Nice choice of design for your son's sweater.
