New Threads TUESDAY!
*************************************

mcp-p1000653

Pattern: Chic Knits Mondo Cable Pulli
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Queensland KATHMANDU

One of best things about working on wool sweaters during summer weather is that they dry in no time flat!

The nature of the yarn used here (barn-yarn, tweedy, bits of hay here & there) and the fact that it’s been dragged around town for months now, meant it needed a good shampoo. I soaked it in warm soapy water and then dried it flat on a huge towel.

And was I ever rewarded! The yarn bloomed slightly and softened so much it is now extra yummy ;p

I’m totally ready for cooler weather!

I went with long sleeves on this version, knowing I’d like it more in January, and could always push them up for a little cool breeze on the wrists if needed. Also, I added about an inch to the length of this one. The thickness of the yarn (although it was spot on for gauge) just seemed to call out for a bit more length for scale and one more cable cross to balance.

Now I want to make one with cap sleeves!
