Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year, and one in which we will rise to challenges by relying on each other and the Holy, however we define that.

I am working on this:
Rad Cable 1c

The Radiance Cable Jacket by Melissa Morgan Oakes. I’ve got a cold, so there’s been a lot of knitting time, and I’ve finished the fronts and back, and am on to the sleeves.   I am so in love with the yarn and pattern.  The yarn is Berroco’s Inca Gold, a merino/silk blend that is totally yummy — it has, simultaneously, both bounce and drape, sheen and a lovely twist.  Great for next to the skin wear.

The pattern is a lovely cable pattern with a shawl collar. I have a fairly long neck, so this kind of collar is very good.  I’ve made some modifications, which you can check on Ravelry, but on the whole, the basic pattern is quite nice.

I’m also working on a pair of socks, but I may frog them.  The yarn is so lovely, and the improvised pattern is just ok.
