2018 : Project 10

After a LOT of deliberation, a false start or two I finally decided on my first 'proper' sweater project for 2018.

Does anyone else have project commitment issues? I am after all a mostly monogamous knitter! 

On the plus side all that procrastinating (not procrastiKNITing) made me organise my 2018 projects on Ravelry. I hadn't entered projects on Ravelry since I was a beginner/returning knitter in 2009!

Now, I have a whole bunch of bundles that make it ever so easy to find my favourite patterns and my projects (at least the 2018 ones) are nicely collated.

I really showed Ravelry some LOVE this month.

Craft: Knit
Pattern: Humulus by Isabell Kraemer
Main yarn:  Naturally Harmony Aran 10ply from NZ in light cream/grey
Contrast yarn: Blue Sky Fibres Woolstock from my stash in deep velvet
Needle: 3.5mm & 4mm

Notes: I was a bit concerned about my tension around the neck and into the colour work. 
The woolstock is a little bit lighter in weight than the naturally and has buckled a bit. Fingers crossed the blocking will take care of this. 
To soften the fabric I have proceeded to knit the rest of the sweater continental. Lets wait and see…
