I received skeins of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted from Linda Pratt of Westminster Fibers, (the distributor of Rowan yarns) to use in one of my designs. I am really excited about this because I've always loved Rowan yarns and their classic designs. I even got to pick the color that I wanted:
|This color is going to look great on me.|
I swatched. Because good girls swatch:
|5 sts and 6.5 rows per inch with US 8 needles.|

This is the cuff of a sleeve, and it is about 5" tall because I want a little drama. I like this stitch because it looks like a cable but it isn't; the cabled look is created with decreases. I love the fabric, and often can't wait to work on it more because I NEED to see it finished. I'll be posting progress pictures, so make sure to stay tuned to see the final sweater.
