I finished this project yesterday evening tried it on and it fits beautifully. Washed it an dried it flat, not much, ok, any blocking done really. It didn’t shrink or grow hurrah! Maybe my mojo has returned.
Ravelry link Sorry for the mirror shot but I had no other option, at least I took my mirror outside to get some natural light because the light inside my house is shocking today due to the lovely rain we’re having, also I did well getting 10 minutes when it wasn’t raining.
I can honestly say that there is nothing that I don’t love about this project, the yarn is just everything I love about a yarn, woolly, textured, beautiful colour. Due to being woollen spun the stitch definition is slightly fuzzy but the cables still pop. The pattern is intuitive and well written, the cables are just gorgeous and it fits and flatters too! What’s not to love? It was also a speedy knit, extra bonus points! With this in mind I will be buying more Shelter to knit up the other Jared Flood and Wool People patterns in my queue. Talking of Wool People, I think it’s an absolutely perfect name for the look book, also there is a cabled beanie in there called St. Leger. You may recall in my Yorkshire day post I wrote about the St. Leger races, ah ha!
Well I shall be off to start my new project.
