Casting on Jacqueline

Well, I’m really knitting a swatch for a sweater jacket today, but swatching means I’m just thatmuchcloser to actually starting to knit it. But I want to be sure my gauge is right or it won’t fit. It’s really quite beautiful so go check it out for yourself here at Ravelry, it’s called Jacqueline by Melissa Leapman.

In the meantime, here’s the yarn I’ll be using. I just spent a half hour outside in our glorious weather shooting photos of it. Delicious colors, don’t you think? It’s from Lorna’s Laces, the Shepherd Worsted in the colorway called Roadside Gerry. It’s a merino wool that’s amazingly soft, so I’m really excited to start playing with it. Off I go!

      Hi Joyce,

      It is knitting up very nicely and though I’ve only knit the first 2 1/2 inches of the back, I can tell I’m going to love it. I’ll be posting an update soon. Thank you for stopping by!
