Some red knitting to show on this post, a raglan style sweater for my sister-in-law that saw the sleeves and body joined for the yoke last night. Fellow knitters will know that means I am on the home stretch!
|This is the Nunavut Pullover from the Winter 2014 issue of Interweave Knits magazine. The pattern can be found online on Ravelry. I yarn that I am using is Berroco Vintage DK in colour 2159 elderberry. I bought it in Vernon last February at a lovely yarn shop called A Twist of Yarn.|
It is snowing as I speak, big fat wet flakes falling straight down onto the beach at high tide. The photo below tries to show the flakes against the darkness of the background douglas fir tree, but I think that only the reflected lights from our Christmas tree show.
