New Project: Mock Cables 真淑女
Project: Mock Cables 真淑女
Pattern: High-Low Peplum Pullover by Sandy Cushman, Interweave Knits, Spring 2001
Yarn: Karabella Majestic
Yardage: 1240 yards in stash
Needles: Size 7
Cast on: January 26, 2012
Notes: The mock cables are created by well placed decreases and matching yarn overs. The stitch pattern is very simple. I'm skipping the bobbles in the pattern, will find something interesting to fill the spots. The Chinese name means "real (gentle) lady" -- mock cable, real lady, another word play.
In unrelated news, my son, the euphonium player in last week's post, became a fresh teenager on Wednesday. For those been there done that, I will probably need all the warning, suggestions, hand-holding I can get.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog and leave me a comment!
