Jamie and I briefly braved the mighty wind outside to snap these pics this morning. The photos are minimal, I'm afraid, as I'm full of cold (bleurgh) and am also feeling hyper-critical today ;)
The pattern is Jane by Jane Richmond, and it's a really lovely one - just perfect for a not-quite-beginner-but-still-nervous knitter like me. That being said, I think it would still keep an experienced knitter entertained; the eyelet ribbing is definitely interesting enough to knit without driving someone to tears of boredom.
The yarn is Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran in 'Mallard' (aww), and I used less than 100g. I learned a bunch of new skills making this - long tail cast-on, knitting with dpns, switching from circular needles to dpns... YouTube was my saviour on more than one occasion!
I feel like Jane has really helped build up my knitting confidence, so would love to attempt something bigger - maybe a cardigan or a jumper... but there's so much out there! Can anyone out there recommend a pattern? Something not too complex but still interesting would be great. I'd be ever so grateful!
Anyway, for now I just need the temperatures to drop a little so that I can wear this baby out - all I'd get at the moment is a sweaty head. Bring on winter!
