Mr L’s next sweater

The Duxbury Point Pullover

We have agreed on the next sweater. I need to buy the book, Simply Shetland 4: At Tomales Bay
and the next time that I go to Kirkwall I’ll look for some Shetland yarn to knit it with, though I am thinking that if he wears this as hard as he’s wearing the current sweater, I’ll be needing to buy some Superwash yarn.

The photo above is of a particularly nice example. Mr L wants his in a “blue/grey, please.”

I love knitting 4ply Aran patterns. No – actually, I do! don’t mistake me there. I love the intricacy.

UPDATE: Yarn purchased, book on order. Can’t wait to start on this, I really enjoyed knitting having knitted the other sweater – this one will be more fun. I’m getting some coned lambswool and silk for this – similar to the turquoise cone I already have, but more manly in grey. It’s a bit rough and ready, but the day will come for luxurious yarns… *sigh* The price is right, at £12 for a 900g+ cone. A sweater doesn’t have to last all that long at that price, I’m sure.

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
