Rivelin Finished

Just what I need - a lovely snug, warm and cosy sweater.

We have had about 6 inches of snow overnight - this may not seem much to many of you who are used to substantial snow falls - but around here we mostly only get a light coating of snow. Eve has gone off to meet her friends for a snowball fight and Grace is stranded at her boyfriend's flat because the trains aren't running! I am sitting comfortably in a lovely warm house wearing my newest sweater.

The pattern is called Rivelin and is by Louisa Harding from her book entitled Little Cake. It is knitted in aran weight yarn - I used Rowan Pure Wool Aran.

It has patterned welts, cuffs and neck but the main body and sleeves are plain. A nice quick knit and very wearable. Full details of the project can be found on my Ravelry page, here.
My DH didn't notice the new sweater - when it was pointed out to him he said -Don't you already have one that colour! Well yes, actually I've got several this colour - it's one of my favourite colours to wear. I'm sure it won't be the last time I knit this colour!!


  1. very nice. I love that color also

  2. It looks great! Beautiful job.

  3. You're just great in knitting!
    I love this colour too, very much. Compliments for this warm sweater!

  4. Your sweaters are all so beautiful. Again I find a reason to learn to knit. Thank you for the inspiration.

  5. Very nice work.
    Happy New Year
