On the needles: Silken Scabbard

Whilst at Stitches I saw a sample sweater hanging in a booth that caught my eye. I bought the pattern for Silken Scabbard and set about looking for yarn. I wanted a smooth finish yarn to show off the cables, and something summery as I planned to knit the short-sleeved version.

I selected Kollage Yarn's Riveting which is made from recycled blue jeans. It's a light worsted/fingering weight and lovely and soft.

After casting on and knitting the raised collar twice, and ripping it out, I started on the summer neckline variation. I dispute the comment on the pattern that "it almost knits itself"!!

That one has been on my queue for a long time! I can't wait to see how yours turns out.
