Stripes

So, the Not Nautical or Striped, nautical striped sweater now has stripes. Confused? Yes, so am I. But I seem to have got round the problem of discovering I had two different colourways in my stash (oops) by introducing the stripes into the top section. I'm planning to echo this on the front as well. And, depending on the light in the room, it's not actually that obvious.



The garter yoke cardigan is coming along well, and I'm now well down the body. It's quite quick to knit, despite being in DK.

 I was worried that it might not fit (I'm knitting the smallest size), so I tried it on once I'd got a bit further along. It meets comfortably at the neck at the front (not that you can tell from this photo) and I think will be fine.

In other news, I have done a swop, thereby reducing my stash a little more, then promptly acquired 800g of free 4ply which the barman (who is a knitting designer in his spare time) was giving away in the bar where we meet for knitting group. But I haven't taken photos of any of that yet, so it will have to wait for another post.

I like the subtle striping effect. :) I'm not a fan of busy designs on adult clothing, but something simple like this brings a bit of interest to a piece.

The cardi is looking really good!! I've just started the first sleeve, so I think I've caught up again! That said, term's started now, leaving me very little knitting time, so everything is bound to slow down drastically for the next 12 weeks. ;)
