Fall Sweater on the Needles
I'm loving this very fall-like colorway of MadelineTosh. It's called 'Moss", and I couldn't have thought of a better name, myself. The browns and greens, as well as the lights and the darks are a delight to the eye. How Madelinetosh creates these strands without a hint of stripes is a mystery.
I've completed the back portion, and started the sides. The yarn is pure joy to work, but I do question the idea that it's a DK weight. It surely works up more like a worsted.
What's this? Well, it's the lower edge of the left side of a cardigan, of course. This stockinette refuses to lie flat, and I'm thinking that I might have to block the individual pieces before joining.
Christmas knitting and a few surprises are in hiding. They might make a few appearances as the holidays draw near.
