This week I have completed the Ten Stitch, the tea cosy is still in the same position as last, and I have sampled some yarn for a cardigan for me.
So first off that Ten Stitch - fairly pleased with it though I ran out of some of the yarns so wasn't able to keep up the complete rounds, but at least I managed to scrape up enough to get to the size I wanted.
The yarn I'm using for the cardigan for me is Monte Carlo by Zettl which is a Bulky / 12 ply
74% Acrylic, 10% Wool, 10% Alpaca, 6% Rayon - it is lovely and soft but I really struggled to get the tension/gauge correct. The cardigan is short sleeved, 3 button, v neck from the Elle Knitting Book published in 1984, it specifies an aran weight yarn but with a gauge of 15 stitches to 21 rows on 5mm needles which is actually more like a bulky gauge. I finally achieved this gauge on 8mm!! So I'll have to see how it works out.
Thought I'd throw in a photo of my completed Ten Stitch Blankets - still think my favourite is the blue/grey
