The Brae Waistcoat
I designed this sweater so that the fair isle would provide a nice outline to the yoke, neck and sleeve ends. The yarn is KnitPicks fingering wool "Palette" knit on US # 4 needles. The main color is "thicket", the darker blue is "delta" and the lighter blue is "bluebell".
I can't locate Addi Turbo needles in NZ. I have a complete set of all sizes and lengths from the US. But, they all have the stiff cable. I see that the Clicks have a soft cable. Are the new Addi turbos sold with the soft or stiff cable? The internet sites which sell them don't say. I appreciate any help.
This sweater is Nature Spun 100% wool, worsted weight, color: "Winter Blue". The torso is blocks that are 3 sts wide and 6 rows tall, the yoke is K3, P3. The sizing is roomy and comfortable....to be worn over a turtleneck or flannel shirt, with jeans for outdoor activities in the fall and winter.....Warm, comfy week-end wear!

Thanks to ihiker for tip about resizing pictures :D!
Its over 40 different colours and mostly done with scrap yarn. The pattern is from Arne & Carlos book, Knit-And-Crochet Garden. Its a fun project to make, but it takes some patience :D. This was finished last month.
Autumn In New York...oh, I can hear Mel Tormé's Velvet Fog now as drips descend, the temperature cools, the light grows dimmer in the afternoon sooner, the quiet, wet roads and vehicle tires singing in the rain...so it is appropriate to show a recent project finished for a family member...At The Market shawl, pattern written by Ilga Leja.
ok, so i'm making some worsted weight socks, using #6 needles... 2 at a time, toe up, on 2 circs method...
Here is Magnus the Mouse from Arne & Carlos book, Knit-and-crochet Garden. Its really fun to make these mice :D!
A number of years back, I purchased these stitch markers. I think they came in a pack with different sizes in it. The markers on the left are soft and rubbery; the ones on the right are hard plastic. I like these the very best because they are thin enough not to create any gaps in the work and they don't hang down and get caught in the strands.
