The end of February is here already and am happy to report the spinning, knitting and seaming portion of my South Cape is complete. I still need to find a suitable fastener/button.
The knitting portion was quicker than I expected and the changes in texture always kept it interesting, even in 40+ degree heat.
The yarn is my own handspun from a coated, greasy Romney/EL/MerinoX fleece, I had five skeins made before starting the knitting and since it was slightly thicker than the pattern called for I went up 0.5mm needle size on both sizes and the finished product is the perfect size for me. (I had to spin up another four skeins as I was knitting).
Not the greatest photo of the finished product unfortunately (I couldn't get the self timer to take an in-focus modelled shot) but it is reasonably close to accurate colour.
And here is a gratutious texture shot, taken inside so colour is way off.
Now off to decide which smaller project to work on next while waiting for Yarn 9. Let's see if I can get another entry up before then.
