So I've become obsessed with knitting a snuggly, cabled sweater of some kind. Not so strange you may think but remember I live in Singapore - it's hot and humid. Okay - I am going skiing at Easter and that's what got me started.
I saw this on net-a-porter.
this Norah Gaughin Cowl Pullover is close enough - sort of. So I spent ages looking at all the Jade Sapphire Cashmere 8 ply but just couldn't justify the price when I am supposed to be on a yarn diet. I do have enough of the aforementioned yarn in Lupine but I want the sweater to be cream - so....I am going to go with natural coloured Malabrigo Worsted - feel ok about it as if I mess it up (you have to cut your knitting) at least it won't be on expensive cashmere yarn.
Studying is about to resume so knitting time will be shorter - bummer. As much as I love studying, knitting would win hands down in a fight.
Have spent the morning watching watching "Swallows and Amazon's" with daughter number one. Such a lovely film - makes you want to eat cake and drink ginger beer. But who calls their daughter "Titty"? I guess it's short for Letitia, maybe.
Off to make lemonade or jam sandwiches.
