Ribbon Twist Jacket

I need a quick win.

Recently I’ve had a disaster (denim), a brain bender (Spangle gloves) and a heartbreak (Bucky Bear) so I’ve decided to raid my stash and start on this Rowan Ribbon Twist Jacket.

Yes I know – it’s the one one the cover of the pattern book again! (The Ribbon Twist Collection) I must try and choose from inside the book next time…

I’m using Rowan Ribbon twist in a lovely grey shade “Rocky” and Rowan Big Wool Tuft in “Frosty” for the accents.

Rocky ‘n’ Frosty – I like the sound of that! 🙂

Here they are together…

Here’s a sleeve….does the fluffy cream cuff look a bit “Santa Claus”????

When I said, “quick win”, I’d forgotten how quick knitting on 12mm needles was! I’m racing up the second sleeve already.

Just as well really – knitting is taking a back seat this week to redecorating my spare room – I won’t bore you with pics but was a yucky purple blown vinyl walls & wood-chip and distemper coated ceiling, now stripped to find lurid “see in the dark ” yellow painted walls…

I can’t wait to start painting 🙂

Back to the rubbing down….

    Sounds like an ice cream flavour
