On the needles...
Now the New Year is firmly underway, my fingers are itching to start a new knitting project! I absolutely loved making my Vintage His & Her's jumper using Rowan British Sheep Breeds beautiful un-dyed yarn however, I decided that for my next project I would choose something with a bit of colour. Here's a little sneak peek!
I'm using one of my favourite yarns, Rowan Wool Cotton which is a 50 /50 mixture of soft, light wool and airy cotton which feels beautiful in the hand and is much lighter than cotton would be on it's own (and much warmer besides). I chose colours 980 (Brolly), 903 (Misty) and 900 (Antique).
As always before I can begin in earnest there's swatching to be done. I'm planning on bringing this project along for the commute to work each day so I'm hoping I'll whip through it fairly quickly. As for what I'm busy making, you'll have to watch this space for a little while longer!
