Iris Bishop "Evolution"
Well, I am pretty excited as Iris Bishop's BRAND NEW pattern "Evolution" is out. I received my copy this morning from Carol at Metropolitan, and I really cannot wait to get knitting one. Its a tuck stitch and knitweave project so should test my skills.
There are 4 options you can knit ... a waistcoat with or without sleeves, and a jacket with or without sleeves. You can also knit them in different lengths - waist and a longer tunic type. I have decided I am going to knit the longer length tunic style waistcoat (above).
I have already ordered my yarn - I have decided on Yeoman's Sari 3 ply. Not saying the colour as it will be a surprise. I have also decided to use J C Brett Marble Chunky as my weaving yarn - again not saying which colour!
All I can say is this is a real WOW garment when you see the pictures and I cant wait to get knitting it!
