I love to knit. Obviously. I love to blog. Equally obvious, I'm sure. I don't love to model my finished knits. Periodically, I discover that I have an unreasonable number of finished-but-unblogged knits just waiting their chance to be noticed. So this week I am celebrating my recent projects with an FO Parade.
First up is Mossy:
This was a very quick knit; so quick, in fact, that it was done almost before I got to blog about it. The design is my own, but that gorgeous cable is Norah Gaughan's, from Cire Perdue.
Pattern: My own. Top-down turtleneck raglan with front and back darts for shaping. 2x2 ribbing for collar, cuffs, and bottom.
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Luxury Donegal Tweed (85% wool, 15% angora). 8.5 balls! (I ordered 12.)
Needles: Size 6 and 7 Knit Picks Options circs.
Thoughts: I love this one! The yarn is wonderful, both soft and tweedy, and the color is a rich yellow-green (deeper than the pictures show). After washing, it became much drapier and grew just enough to fit the way I was hoping it would. My only regret is that it is so late in the season, I probably won't have a chance to wear this before next winter.
