And We’re Off!

February 9, 2014

Cocoon sweater We’re only two days into the Olympics, and I have cast on and almost finished the back of my sweater!  This is the creatively named “3/4 Sleeve Pullover” from the Vogue Knitting Holiday Issue.  The back is very boring, but the front and arms have a lovely cable lace pattern.  I had hoped to get a lighter colour, but this is what the yarn store had in enough quantity.  It is a lovely blue/grey, the mohair in the Rowan Cocoon is silvery and it is lovely to work with.  I have another sweater made with a wool/mohair blend and it is holding up well.  So far our family has been watching some of the Opening Ceremonies, figure skating (of course), women’s hocky, moguls (which Fia LOVED), some sliding sports, long track speed skating.  It is wonderful, we love these winter sports.
