Next Project on the Needles

Hubby's Pullover, picked out and colors chosen by him. This is the Traditional from "Fair Isle Sweaters Simplified" by Ann Bourgeois of Philosopher's Wool. The fiber is Philosopher's 2 ply worsted in colors Peat, Wine, Anne, Rust, and Yellow. I'm knitting on size 7 needles to get the gauge. After two projects using J&S Shetland, this yarn feels like rope in my hands. It knits up very rapidly, only two evenings into it and the sleeve is half done. The wool is soft and quite heavy.

Loved the colors but not the yarn as the weights really varied by the color. It seemed to go from 3 ply weight to regular worsted weight. It sure will knit up fast though. Good to see you today and loved your newest J&S.
