So, without further a do I introduce to you one of my works in progress started at the beginning of this week.
This is number 1260 of my Ravelry queue and is Miette by Andi Satterlund. I believe I queued this pretty cardigan pattern way back in October 2010, and I have been dying to cast it on since then, but life just got in the way.
The yarn used is Rico Creative Cotton in colourwave Cardinal. It's not an expensive yarn, but boy knitted up in this pattern it looks fabulous. I could have gone for a paler colour, but this jewelled, rich purple just accentuates this pattern to a tee.
So where do I go from here? Well, the item has been blocked and I'm planning on sourcing buttons and photographing the finished article this weekend, with my sister modelling it for me. Fingers crossed she doesn't try to sneak off home still wearing it or there will be a war. So if everything goes to plan the finished piece photos should be ready for my Sunday post.
