New Knitting Adventure

When a pattern is 9 pages long with small print adn many, many charts I think it's OK to call knitting it an adventure.

Just ordered the yarn and downloaded the pattern for Wisteria by Kate Gilbert. Hope it turns out 1/2 as good as the pics. Will use Dream in Color Classy in Black Parade.

It's really the cables on the collar, cuffs and hem that did it for me. I looked at pics of it knit in a solid color and I didn't like the blank contrast between all the cables and not texture. Classy, is a variegated yarn.

I'll have about a week or so to study the pattern before the yarn is delivered. Can't wait for the challenge.

  1. Hi Monica! Just wanted to drop by your blog for some knitting inspiration ;-) Maybe I'll try something more than a scarf??
