Bláithín & Kate Davies
When her latest design Bláithín was released I immediately wanted to start one for myself out of Sweet Fiber Cashmerino Worsted. After a week or so of colour considerations I finally decided on Abyss, a beautiful dark blue with hints of black, for the main body. The yoke will either be Vintage Lace, a warm cream colour, or Smoke, a light cloudy grey. I’m still undecided about the flowers though.. I’ll definitely have to swatch a couple different options first.
I’m about half way done the first sleeve and really love how the Abyss is knitting up. This is going to be perfect! I altered the cast on amount for the size I’m following since I have somewhat small wrists and like my sweaters to fit a bit closer in the arms. I also plan on making them longer, as well as lengthen the body portion for a more personalized fit.
