cork

Dudes! Can you believe it? I finished another sweater!

I’m really bad at keeping track of information, so I don’t know how many balls of Rowan Cork I used for this. Maybe 8? I developed the pattern with Knitscape software. I was inspired by some sweaters in the Boden catalog (they are no longer on the web site). I have not yet blocked the sweater, so there are some bumps and such, but overall it is very comfy and warm. Cork is really sproingy and lightweight. Don’t know why those Rowanites discontinued it!

    Very nice! You could probably tell me this, is knitscape also a windows only program? This is the first I’ve heard of it, so I’m curious. It looks like a nifty program!

    I just love that sweater. I knit my first project in Cork recently (a little hat), and I enjoyed it as well. I completely agree — why did they discontinue it?

    What a gorgeous sweater!
    There must be a ghost in that machine, Rowan. Trying to sabotage their business by discontinuing every yarn people really like.

  21. Kristin says:

    Rowan is discontinuing all of their wonderful yarns. I fully expect to see them with fun fur any day now…

  22. Dana says:

    Love the sweater! The colours are perfect together. Is that a zipper collar too? one of my favourite necklines…
