It's looking good!
Beautiful shape, look forward to seeing the finished result!
Thanks, I do really like the shape too :)
Yes, nice looking pattern.I only tried circular needles once then went back to rigid sets for working in rounds. How do you find them?
For something like this they are great because they allow you to knit a huge long row easily (since you're not actually joining to knit in the round). Sometimes I find them a little 'sticky' at the join between needle and cable but good quality needles would combat this.For circular knitting generally I think I also prefer double pointed needles as they are more flexible to accommodate increasing and decreasing stitches as you don't need to worry about getting a cord of the right length.
Love the yarn shade.Liz @ Shortbread & Ginger
Gorgeous colour! How do you find the New Lanark? I've always worried it might be a bit on the scratchy side, but this looks lovely!
I have to say that it's not as soft as some wools - the one I've used was 10% silk but that doesn't make much difference to the softness. I think I wouldn't use it for baby/childrens clothing but I don't think it's itchy per se. That being said I haven't yet washed it so am expecting it to soften up a little.
It's looking fantastic! Good luck with the rest of it. :)
Hurrah! Looking so great!!!
This is really looking lovely! Nicely done!
It's looking good and I love the colour
It's looking good so far. Something else for me to learn, I-cord bind off! Looking forward to seeing it finished :)
