Here we are, well into July and time to start my stashbuster project. I need my 3.75mm which are stuck on the Tweedy Aran Cardigan. In order to free them up, the fancy rib's got to be worked. The back was cast on earlier on but the little voice has been nagging me. The stitches knitted in the tweedy Beaverslide Fisherman wool are not very well-defined compared to what I'm used to and I wonder whether the cables will stand out. However, the pattern did called for a tweed yarn, so am I just worrying too much? To play safe, I tested out the fancy rib pattern. So what do you think, are the ribs popping up well enough or obscured by the tweed? I love this yarn but not sure if it is right for this pattern. Otherwise, I can use the yarn for the Blissful Cardigan in the latest IK (Fall 05).
I did manage to begin Angel but with a sleeve instead that starts with 3mm. I found another 40cm 3.75mm circulars which should work for the sleeve but not for the back. No wonder Joy loves Wool Cotton so. The yarn is lovely to knit, it gives sort of a matt finish and the stitches look really nice and clear. Even my ribbing doesn't look as bad as usual. How I wish the local lys can carry this yarn. The DK weight and fibre content should make it very suitable for Hong Kong weather.
