Wisteria


I wasn't able to finish Wisteria in time for Christmas, but I did finish it before New Years. I can really say that I totally enjoyed this knit. The cables look very intricate, but it is pretty simple once you get used to the pattern. I loved the yarn too. I used some hand dyed yarn from one of my favorite yarn shops on the coast of Maine. It was really hard to capture the beauty of the yarn and the cables with the camera, but I tried my best. The first picture shows better detail of the cables, and the second picture captures the yarn color better (except for the shadows of the tree branches).

Pattern: Wisteria
By: Kate Gilbert
From: The Twist Collective
Yarn: String Theory Mosaic Yarn
Needle: US 8 circular

Once I lose the seven to eleven pounds of Christmas cookies and truffles I ate, I think it will look even better : )
