Grace

Another Christmas present is well underway - I'm on fire over here people.



This is the completed back of Grace, a very cozy DB cardi from the cotton angora book. I'm using some Jaeger Shetland Aran that I bought from Janette a few weeks ago (great yardage on this stuff). I love the sagey color - although it has looked grey in every photo - I had to saturate this picture to get it to even look green let alone the warm sagey green that it actually is. This will be for my mom and I know she'll enjoy it. The cables and ribbing are making it very luxurious and "cushy" and this yarn has absolutely no itch factor. I want one for ME too!

Good for you! I've started a few Christmas presents myself but can't seem to stay focused on just one. LOL Love the yarn dying to did as well - quite a project.

Gorgeous. Warm sage is one of my favourite colours. I feel your pain with photographing colours - mine never look like they do in reality.

I love the patterns you pick! This one is so beautiful, the cables are perfect and the color WOW!
I went to the Debbie Bliss site and many of the sweaters made with the cotton angora are really nice. I'm going to keep my eyes open for this pattern book.

I hadn't visited the Debbie Bliss site for a while; thanks for directing us there. I LOVE almost all of her stuff, but "Grace" is particularly cozy looking.

Beautiful cables! I made Grace a while back, and it's still my favorite knit to wear... You definitely should make one for yourself, use your favorite worsted.

Ooh. Beautiful. I'm *almost* not freaked out by the Christmas knitting comment, as this is so pretty to look at. So, you have a Janette connection, too?
