Love your Library - post 2

Yay, it's finished!  Raspberry tart that is !

 I apologise for the photos - I had to take them after work and the sweater is in the bath blocking!! The colour of the sweater is a much more intense blue.
I love knitting sweaters, but they take me forever to complete, this has taken about 3 months and the last 3 weeks, I haven't really worked on anything else.
I have been knitting clue one of a mystery sock KAL, but that's about it.

I am now ready for a CO frenzy!!  All from my library.
I have CO Fragile Heart by Boo knits.

I will CO Abate for my youngest (a small sweater will hopefully progress much quicker!)
And I have CO the second square of a blanket from my library of magazines.

The square is from stash, but the other two projects are being knitted from specially purchased yarn, so don't think it counts as stash!  Also I noticed that De rerum Natura has a sale this week so I had to buy more Gilliatt!  I will try harder next week to knit from stash and not add to it!

Linking up with Snapdragon crafts (see link in side bar) and KCCO


  1. I'm also knitting from my stash this week for tiny little things, but I have a large project on the needles that I think will take me a rather long time. Nice job on the sweater. Hopping over from KCCO.

  2. Yay for finishes!!! Will keep watch for the photo shoot of the sweater.

  3. Fun!! You deserve to go CO crazy after finishing that amazing sweater!

  4. That finishing feeling, there's nothing quite like it. Gorgeous cables.

  5. Aw Fragile Heart was my first ever lace shawl. Beads and lace weight yarn, jumping in at the deep end a bit but it's such a pretty pattern. I've knitted a few of Boo's designs now.

    Love your sweater, those cables are beautiful

  6. Your sweater is beautiful. I love cables...they always turn an item into something special.
