It's being knitted in "Inca" which is an Australian yarn: 60 wool, 30 alpaca and 10 synthetic. It's what you'd call "chunky" or 12 ply. Love it as it's so damned soft ... just beautiful to knit with, too.

I've just finished knitting the first 48 cms of the back and the lovely diamond feature is about to begin ... can't wait.

Go, David! Go, David!

You're a zippy knitter, my friend. Or else you've got more stick-with-it-ness than I do. I have to jump up every few minutes and do something else (like start another knitting project!!).

Can't wait to see this one done!

update - I've finished this now (at least all the knitting) and have to press it and sew it up with my (enormous) yarn needle.
