She's got it...

So Martha was dropped off at Julie's, and she had another project ready to go. Texture Pullover from Tahki yarns using Montana.
100% pure new wool. It's knit on 10mm needles and it feels like I'm knitting a sponge.And wait till you see what I'm knitting with this pretty stuff.And after trying several times when she was younger, Miss "P" wanted to try again. She really amazed her gramma this time. She really got it!!!!!!

Wow....

I'm not a big Noro fan, but I think this Yuzen has made me think twice about it. Much lighter and softer than the regular Noro, and you just want to keep knitting to see the next colour change. It's 56% wool, 34% silk, and 10% kid mohair.Pattern: Martha-- from Catwalk Book 1 Jenny Watson Designs
Yarn: Noro Yuzen-- 10--50g balls Colour #5
Needles: 3.25mm & 4mm

I think I started this 2 weeks ago and it seemed to just fly off the needles. I even matched up the stripes pretty good, with very little waste. I will admit, there was a little bit of spit splicing goin' on to accomplish this.And can you believe these buttons! It's like they were made for this colourway. I'll be delivering this to Julie on Saturday, so if you want to see it up close, please pop in.

Now, I'm back to the cardigan for the alpaca farm, pictures soon.

Remembrance...

What better way to use up some leftover yarn.The only thing I changed was starting the red yarn on row 3 instead of 4. Just to make the black center a little smaller.
Brilliant pattern. Thank you Laura!
You can find the pattern here!

Moving right along...

This sweater is knitting up pretty fast. I'm just waiting for the sleeves to finish blocking and then on to the ribbing.
