progress report #1

Hello you've reached Knit-Line...

Thank you to Mum and Alison for your help to date with my newest knitting project.

After having packed up so many of my possessions and then moved them to Patrick's parent's house and then realised the unpacking of them will not be for a long time I decided to get me some new wool.

It is 100% merino wool, I am using a Debbie Bliss pattern, all done on 3 3/4 needles (which are small as far as I am concerned) and a cable needle. Having never cabled anything before I am chuffed by the results! This is the back of the "ribbed cardigan" and I thought the detail at the back was lovely. Obviously when worn it will be pulled out a bit, which should perhaps show the pattern off a bit more but I am loathe to pull it for photographic effect as I suspect the picture that would follow would be a picture of Sad Emily, trying to put the dropped stitches back on her 3 3/4 needles.

Further photos will follow.


  1. Your work is beautiful. You should be very proud of yourself. Have you finished the back yet? And is it Brett wool you are using? It was on sale in Mum's readicut catalogue and seemed like a very good price.
    I have finished the back and one sleeve of my grey ribbed jumper (my doesnt it sound nice?) If someone shows me how to put photos on the computer I too will send a pic.

  2. Thank you for your message! The wool is sirdar wool, DK. I look forward to seeing the pics of your jumper, or in the flesh as I may come and visit in person during August so Patrick can tell this year's Perrier award winner when he can shove his show.

  3. I think there should be a jumper update

  4. My cardi is coming along very well thank you! I am on to the front now. Depending om how exciting I find the sleeves, it would end us as a snazzy singlet.
