Nevis

I've been busy!! I finished Nevis today, seconds before being whisked off to this. I'm sure there will be lots of other bloggers writing about this so I won't. Suffice to say the Harlot had me in stitches - get it - and I'm soaking my feet as I blog.

Nevis






Pattern details:

Pattern name: Nevis
Pattern Source: Rowan 42
Yarn used: Rowan Tapestry
Needle size 3.25 mm and 4mm
Size: Smallest
Started: Nov 2007
Finished : Sept 2008

Comments: Straight forward pattern. No errors which was refreshing! The yarn is extremely splitty which is a problem when knitting a cable pattern. The only problem I had with the pattern was the lack of a set up row for the cable pattern. Cabling on row 1 is not the easiest thing to do. The colourway of the yarn is stunning, sadly, I have not been able to capture this.

Lovely Nevis! I'd have changed the pattern to do the cabling on the next row!
Wasn't it great today? I'm all spent up, and need to do a stash overhaul I think!

Nevis looks great, you finished just in time for young man to wear now that it has gone colder.
My feet are also recovering.
