Hi. I am going to repost this. It seems to have been lost somehow.
Thought I'd share my current work in progress. It is an Alice Starmore design from her American Portraits. A bit tedious...it's worked by knitting into the back of a stich(kbs), purl, kbs,p,kbs,p...and the wrong side is the opposite...purl into the back of stitch (pbs) , knit, pbs, k....Time consuming but a great result.

This is a really interesting pattern and texture, even if it is slow going. Look forward to watching the progress of this one. How's Henry VIII by the way?

Henry's good. He's got one

Henry's good. He's got one sleeve done. I've never put aside a project like I did Henry (with the exception of Martin Storey's Kirby which was filled with bobbles...they nearly drove me insane!) Henry's pattern involves 5 charts and it requires a lot of concentration/following along of charts. I found I needed a break from him. I think about him every day, though, so I believe I'll be picking him up again shortly. I also started and finished Jade Starmore's Lavoisier in the meantime, as well as sewing together/finishing Irish Beach, another Alice Starmore design. I'll have to photograph those sweaters. They are both truly beautiful patterns.
Thank you!
