Stocking stitch for the win


Since my last update I've been pretty busy. Last weekend we went to Marysville for the Marysville Marathon Festival . I only did the ten k event, but it was an  wonderful day with wonderful weather. I actually didn't log on to the internet from Wednesday night to Tuesday night! All the busy hasn't slowed down the knitting though. After two pairs of cabled socks in a row I thought it was time for some stocking stitch in the round. I chose the Seberg Sweater from  from Knitscene Spring 2012 which incidentally, half the Richmond Knitters seem to be knitting things from.
 I bought the yarn in Loop London on my yarn crawl with Jen, the yarn is called  Savannah and it's wonderful. 50% wool, 20% cotton, 15% linen + 15% soya which gives it the perfect feel for this transitional jumper. Knitting with hand and kettle dyed yarn has spoilt me for commercial dyed yarn. There is so much vibrancy in this fabric.

 It has been a pleasure to knit and perfect for all the running around I did over the weekend. This might also be my last chance this year to (sensibly) knit a jumper in one piece. The weather should be warming up soon, and we will move into shawl, sock and baby knitting time. I might try to sneak in just one more jumper for Leon though.
