Falling Slowly

Look at that! I'm ready to pick up stitches for the neck!!! And I read up on finishing techniques using my Debbie Bliss How To Knit book. Excellent diagrams and text if I do say so myself. I can't even see the side seams on the body of the sweater. Those seams up there are shoulder seams - they're even and consistent, but not invisible, which is typical of shoulder seams. I'm still a bit nervous about knitting the sleeves in to the body since I decided to knit them in the round which was not per the pattern instructions. Oh well.

This little pretty pink skein of 100% cashmere made my entire week! Thank you again, Lauren! I've been hunting for the perfect cowl pattern for finger-weight. Any suggestions would be welcome. I'm thinking a lace pattern would be ideal.

And we've been picking up signs of fall during our sporadic walks in the neighbourhood. Must. Get. Out. More. The sun is shining today against the weather channel's predictions, and it's begging for us to go out and play! Can do.
Happy Sunday!

An almost finished sweater and cashmere yarn! You're on a roll!

I'm obsessed with my Baktus scarf atm. It's not a cowl but works similarly. Looking forward to seeing what you do with it. - me@salihan.com

Glad it arrived safely - sorry for the delay! there are SO many beautiful cowl patterns on Ravelry... a simple lace one that calls for cashmere - maybe the Purl Bee one? (http://www.purlbee.com/cashmere-cowl-no-2-lace-rib/)

Looking forward to seeing your decision!

Lovely collection of fall things too - this is such an amazing time of year!

Is that the skein you won in her contest? Lovely prize! I can't wait to see what you make with it!

Love Debbie Bliss' books.
