Of cables and hooded woolwares

After finishing the Araucania cardi, this is my next big project – The Central Park Hoodie by Heather Lodinsky.

The yarn I’m using is the Pure Border Leicester by Blacker yarns – a solid english wool, which is going to make a sturdy and versatile (and very warm, I’m sure) garment.

The yarn has no halo whatsoever, so the cables are nicely defined and round and plump, and on 5.5mm needles it knits up fast – in fact, I’m hoping to make considerable progress over the weekend.

But of course, it’s the holiday season, and there are parties to attend … we’ll see how it goes.

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.
