A few needlepoints later I’m back here because I really want to share my latest knitting project.
For the last five days I feel that I didn’t want to go to bed even when I could hardly keep my eyes open and could not wait for the next morning to start.
The reason of this is Orkney.
Orkney cardigan (pattern by Marie Wallin) that I started knitting last Saturday night. I had Orkney cardigan in queue on Ravelry for a while and then sometime this past August I bought Rowan Felted Tweed DK in colors suggested in the pattern and could hardly wait for it to make a long journey from England to Hong Kong.
When it arrived, as soon as I opened the package I knew I had to put aside all my other projects.
Five days of knitting have been very exciting. The color combination is gorgeous. Knitting Orkney is a pleasure and I wonder as I knit row after row, what color and pattern would be next.
Even though some people suggest knitting it in the round, I’m knitting it just like in the instruction. Maybe I will knit the sleeves in the round. I haven’t decided on it yet.
Here is one of my finished needlepoints. It is Naxos Cat design by Elian McCready.
While being stretch
and made into a cushion cover.
My cat definitively approves ^_^
