Here's a sneak preview of my next knitting project. This is the cable yoke of the Top-down Baby and Child's Cable Yoke Jacket designed by the wonderful Cotton & Cloud. As recommended I'm knitting it in Jamieson's Shetland Heather in shade 517 Mantilla.
The pattern starts with the cable yoke that you can see above. Not easy to kit, especially when you start it, but once you're in the rhythm it's not too bad at all. You then pick up stitches from the two edges of the yoke to do the hood and then the body and sleeves. As the rest of the knitting is relatively plain I'm hoping that it will speed up then too.
The plan is that it should be finished by next winter so LMC can wear it to keep warm them. Surely that should leave enough time, even for me!
