Purple-y Goodness

Ever since I saw KnittingTheBlue‘s beautiful (and GREEN!) Baby Cables and Big Ones Too, I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do with the bag of Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed that’s been sitting in my stash since my trip to Webs almost two years ago. Until I saw hers, I wouldn’t have thought that the cables would show up so well on a tweedy, slubby yarn like this, especially when they’re on a background of either garter stitch or stockinette.

So to give myself a rest from all of the seed stitch and waffle stitch, I cast on for NaKniSweMoDo #6. Like everyone says, it’s a really well-written pattern, and so far, it’s been a very enjoyable knit. Even doing garter stitch in the round.

I won’t get much farther on this for a while, though, because I’m heading off again for warmer climates. Yes, it’s another cruise! This time with my father, my sister, and a bunch of her family members. I’ll be taking Thermal with me as my knitting project.

See you in flip-flops! I mean, catch you on the flip-flop.

    Have fun on the cruise! Don’t be surprised if this sweater and all of the associated yarn are missing when you get back. 😉

    Number SIXXXXX?? You go on a cruise, you knit six sweaters in three days (weeks, months, whatever) and I’m trapped at my desk surrounded by tax returns?

    It’s good to be you. Pretty color. Garter stitch in the round? I take it back. 🙂
