Raglan sweater finished and new project!

At last the raglan sweater is finally finished having had to extend the length. It just needs another steam to help the stitches set a bit more, but other than that it is DONE!!!

Hope you all like it.

I have also this weekend started my next project on the Bond - finally a jumper for me to wear! It is going to be a saddle shoulder sweater as I have never made one before, so it is quite exciting to see how it turns out. I decided to put a cable design up the sleeves and along the saddle patch.

Here are the sleeves:

Here is a close up of the cable pattern design I chose to use:

I am hoping the sweater turns out really well. Ive also done it slightly larger than I would normally make for myself as I want this to be more of a comfy fit sweater for the winter.

Just the back and front to do now!

Thats all for now

Happy knitting everyone!



  1. The finished sweater looks great. Is is a machine washable yarn? I always find that washing and tumble drying helps a lot . The stitches seem to always go nice and straight after a wash.

    The saddle shoulder sweater is looking good too. Great job on the cable.

    Everyone is so much more prolific with their knitting than I am. Hopefully I will speed up in time.

  2. That jumper at the top is really nice Phil :)
    I can't wait to see more updates on the cable jumper, it is looking good.

  3. Did you finish this one yet? Looking forward to the pictures.

  4. Your finished project looks very nice!
    I also love the project you're working on with the Bond. Can't wait to see the finished result.
