Something old, something new

First the old: I finally got Steven to take some pictures of me in my Sahara jumper.

I love this jumper and probably wear it more than anything else I’ve knitted. I’ve already blogged my thoughts on the pattern so I’ll move right on to the new.

I’ve abandoned attempting to convert the Vino cardigan to something that I’ll actually wear and instead am going to use the yarn to make another Cocoknits pattern, Katje. It’s an interesting pattern, knitted from the top seam of the hood down. Given how well my Katarina cardigan turned out, I’m really looking forward to this one.

Finally, there’s yet another pair of socks on the needle.

These are Thuja from Knitty in Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran, which is a gorgeous yarn but unless you happen to be standing in John Lewis looking for yarn that you can buy right now, I’d recommend ordering from New Lanark instead. I’m enjoying the speed of knitting socks in aran-weight and Thuja is a great pattern, enough going on to keep them interesting without getting too complicated. Steven started these but has finally decided that he just isn’t a knitter so I volunteered to finish them for him.

For someone who doesn’t like knitting socks, I seem to be spending rather a lot of time on them recently!
