Pilot House in Red
For once I have finished a project at the right time of the year!
Winter has not really made it's presence felt but come 1 June, I am under no illusions that it will.
I had come to the conclusion after completing my owls jersey, which incidentally I haven't worn yet, that shaped jerseys are the most flattering shape on me. I also came to the conclusion after my Owls jersey and Miette cardigan that I don't like knitting in the round on circular needles. The Pilot House Jersey by Amy Herzog proved to be the perfect solution and best of all, I could use her custom fit software to get the perfect fit for both my wool/tension and size.
To trial the pattern I used an op shop find, the perfect amount of wool still wrapped in it's paper covers. It is Patons Caressa which according to Ravelry is discontinued. I knitted it on 4mm needles and the composition of the wool is 45% wool, 45% acrylic and 10% mohair so it should be nice and warm.
