If any of you have not heard or read about the Ravi KAL, please do so as Ravi is really addictive .........
It's a top down cardigan & the yoke is knitted as a stripe with short row shaping - finished 7 wedges & there's still 12 to go. I am using Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Sock yarn which is lovely & also my new Hiya Hiya bamboo needles. I love my new needles as they are really smooth & the cord does not twist as it has a swivel join. I just bought a set of interchangeables from Stranded In Oz & her service is excellent.
Sorry for the digression, back to Ravi. It's a KAL & clue 1 has just been released, so if you are interested, it's not too late to join.
I was glad to cast on a new project as I was not doing well with my Vitamin D which I have just ripped the 2nd time as I miscounted the stitches during the short row shaping. Now I have 2 cardigans on the needles & both of them involve short row shaping, one is just the normal w&t & Ravi uses Japanese short rows. By the time I finish these 2 cardigans, I will be a short row expert !
Before I go, let me share with you my recent heavenly acquisition ...... freshly spun alpaca yarn from a friend's farm.
She has 9 alpacas & they are sheared every year in summer. Recently, she had the fleece spun by a local spinning mill & I bought 5 balls for a vest. The alpaca yarn is so lovely & soft & there will be more in summer from these gorgeous fellas ......
Aren't they cute !
