New Vintage Knit
Another pattern from Vintage Knits by Sarah Dallas. Double-knit cotton, and so many cables I caved in and learned to cable without a cable needle. It's a pretty straightforward pattern if you're taking notes and not watching The Wire, but if you are - prepare to muck up the decreases a few times. (It's a good idea to chart the pattern repeat, too, as the book doesn't have charts.)
In other knitting news, a great way to store circular needles. To be honest, I'm probably going to punch holes in the needle sleeves, instead of sewing, but I have an old filofax (remember those?) that would be perfect for this.
I'm working on the sewing patterns I promised in the previous post, but illustration jobs suddenly arrived in a bunch, demanding attention. As soon as I've managed to get them fed, watered, and settled, I'll put the patterns up.
