Cables and Twists

I am slowly making progress on the Alice Starmore sweater called, 'Inishmore' from her book, Fishermen's Sweaters. I do love it but the twisted stitches are a killer on the hands. I am a bit past the 2nd repeat and in my guestimation I'll need a little over the 3rd before I start the armhole decreases.

Starting Up......

I cast on New Years Eve. another Alice Starmore pattern called Inishmore. It's in the Fishermen's Sweaters book as was my Kinsale that I finished last month. This is an aran pattern and I am using a new yarn that was a gift from an online friend. It's a challenging pattern but it will be worth the work and beautiful when completed.

Finishing Up....

This is a DROPS Design by Garnstudio
I love the access we have to their patterns. They are so generous when tons of them are free. This one is Design #108-22. I used Queensland Kathmandu DK which is a blend of Merino, Cashmere, and Silk. I love the tweed look and the colors.

Here's the pattern photo as well since my picture doesn't show the entire sweater.
