Turbulent times!

I would like to introduce Turbulence U Neck sweater, pattern by Norah Gaughan (pattern in Knitting Nature book). Well, as much of it as I have done so far ... I've spent most of the weekend working on the charts for the cabled neckline. This has been my first foray into using charts, being a die-hard written pattern fan until now. The air was blue as my tired, fuggy brain tackled Row 19 - a mere 4 times and 5 hours later ... success!!

( Knitted in Debbie Bliss Cotton DK)
On to less turbulent times, now that the battle with Row 19 has been won!

Thanks so much for your lovely comments! I love this book, PL. There are a number of patterns in it I can't wait to do - oh my little beauty, Ogee! Hope you've treated your self at Amazon, PL... Christina, you absolutely could do this - I've seen the beautiful work you've done!! And this was what I was 'needle tucking' on at Get Knitted, Joy;) The cotton is working fine for the cables, DC. Have also got the Soft Twist now too and think that'll look quite different from this one...

Thanks, Pictish, enabler extrodinaire;) I love this yarn to knit with - it knits up so fast and feels lovely. Riggwelter, Kendra and Tusa ... I can't say I am a convert to charts yet but am pleased that I stuck with it. There are so many stunning sock and garment patterns out there that I have avoided to date. I now would feel braver about trying them ... I just need a swear box near by and a long hand secretary to write it all out for me;) And what fantastic, exciting news from you too Kendra ... will be watching for news of your very special WIP;)

Great jumper. Glad you didn't let row 19 get the better of you.
