I cut the Birds!





The steek is cut. It all went fine, so I won't need to worry about steeking again. I'm glad that I made the reinforcement, though.



Also, edging is done, ends are weaved in and it's now blocking. Once it's dry I'll sew on the buttons.






Yesterday I bought three skeins of Rowan Tapestry. Have you tried it? What do you think? It contains 30% of soybean protein fiber. Now, that's interesting! Another fiber I haven't tried. The rest of the content is wool. It's very soft so I want to knit a scarf using the ogee pattern from Mary Thomas's Book of Knitting Patterns, which I also used for my cardigan.

Very, very cool steek. I'm thinking of picking up some Shetland wool at BC Garn's sale in a few weeks... But I have enough yarn in sweater quantities, so maybe I should wait!

It comes unwashed, yes? How do you like knitting with it?

Way to go! The cardigan looks great.

Trine, the yarn comes unwashed. I washed it gently before knitting with it. I don't think you need to but I believe it made it a bit softer. It's not soft, though, but I don't mind because soft is not always good, right? I really liked knitting with it so now I'll just have to see how durable it is.

Yay for successful steeks! Your knitting is beautiful; I can't wait to see the finished sweater!

Hej Lise, så fin den er blevet. Og det er ikke spor farligt at klippe - hvis man har syet grundigt og tæt. Glæder mig til at se den på. Kirsten
