First of all, thank you all very
much for all of the nice compliments
on my Yoke Pullover !
I haven't been up to much lately.
It's been mostly work and a just a little knitting.
The main cable is about a 24 row repeat incorporated with eyelets.
This is not a cable that I would have chosen to work if it were pared with other cables. Rosi has pared it with a simple straight stitch throughout the body. I love this combination.
I was on Ravelry one day last week searching patterns and saw the Tempo Vest by RosiG (she's the Soapy Knitter). I know a lot of you know Rosi but for those of you that don't; she designed the Capitan Hat and who hasn't heard about or seen the Capitan hat ?
Her newest pattern is called the Tempo Vest. When I saw that big eyeleted cable running up the front of the vest, well, I had to have it. I am using Cascade 220 Heathers in a kind of deep mauve. As you can see, it't a really beautiful color.
