The cables on this jumper does not show very well on these photos unfortunately.  But if youhave a look at the link above you'll see it.

I  have used New Lanark Aran and 5.0 mm needles, I am really happy with the result, and this is a jumper I would be happy making another time, but definetly a different colour. I am considering dyeing it or even orange..we'll se if I ever get that far;)

Staff hat

I was inspired by the norwegain/scandinavian forum Hobbyboden
to knit this hat known as The Staffhat.
It's really easy to make
Here you can see the start of the knitted band
I chose Rowan Soft lux, as you can see it has a golden thread  running through it
Result on sofa: I like it alot

Result on head: I love it, and it's really soft, so soft that even my daughter wants to wear it!!

I might make another few of these closer to Christmas;)
But for now, I will try to finish my jumper in the New Lanark wool that i bought some years ago at the SECC in Glasgow!

Enjoy your weekend everybody
