Look what turned up in the post today from Bendigo Woollen Mills, along with some other 12ply for the stash and some baby wool for Katt. The colour is a much deeper rust colour than the picture, almost bordering on brown, it is just gorgeous. I can't wait to start it, but being dark it may be a daylight hours only knit. I did order some other colours and thought that I may have a hard time choosing when it arrived but this colour just grabbed me as soon as I opened the parcel
This is what the wool is going to fly off the needles (I hope)to become, it is the cabled shrug from Interweave Knits Fall 2005 issue. It is more like a shawl with sleeves which is what I loved about it, I much prefer it to the figure hugging shrugs. It was a must do pattern the moment I saw it but unfortunately when we receive the magazines we are in opposite seasons so it had to get shelved until our Autumn (fall). It is perfect for wrapping around your shoulders when it is cold and believe me here in Tasmania it gets cold.
I am going now to cast on, I will post a progress pic. as soon as I get a bit done.
