Here are my 3 (gulp!) works in progress:-

I'm knitting Pebbles from the Rowan pattern using Rowan All Seasons Cotton in a colour called Purr. It is knitted in seed stitch and is proving somewhat tricky - I have to keep track of every row and have to concentrate as it is very easy to go wrong! I've done more frogging and tinking on this pattern than I've ever had to on all my other projects combined!

I'm also knitting Starsky using Jaeger Shetland Aran wool in an unreleased shade of green - kind of a muted holly colour - almost tweedy in shade but not an actual tweed wool if that makes sense?

The third project is the Hudson sweater from Noro Knits using Big Kureyon wool in colour number 1. I'm loving the way this is knitting up but because I figure it is really a wintery jumper I'm trying to concentrate on the Pebbles first.

They all look great, and what FANTASTIC yarn!! :inlove: You will get better at the cable pattern in Starsky, believe me. The first couple repeats for me were so tedious but it got so much better as I went along. Good luck!!! :thumbsup:

They're all lovely! No matter which you choose to work on, it must be very satisfying.

Now when they're all knit up and you have to seam all of them. :rollseyes: That's what I end up doing. :shifty:

Go for it!!!!!!!!!

There is nothing hard about knitting from a pattern - you just have to understand what they mean - and there are enough very experienced and downright friendly people on this forum to help when necessary. Once I had a problem which even my knitting maestro mum couldn't figure out but within 5 mins of posting to the How To forum I had great advice and managed to sort everything out - and my problem is now a beautiful cardigan!

Beautiful, beautiful stuff! :inlove: :inlove: :inlove:

I love the look of seed stitch, but I think I'd be completely batty by the end of doing that much of it!

Those are wonderful! And just think... if you finish one, you don't have to figure out what to knit next ;)
