Bit of Knitting

I mentioned a while back that I started a new knitting project. With our cool coastal climate , I wanted something to keep me warm but yet something that could also stay open when the temperatures warmed up, and keep me just right. Do you know what I mean? Well I believe I had found it when I saw Leslie's new knit a few months ago. It's Astor from Berroco, and it's knit up in Peruvia Quick.

I'm totally enjoying this pattern. The back and one and a half fronts are done. I did have a bit of a hard time with the wickerwork pattern on the first front, had to rip and redo about three times until I got it right. Once I figured it out, away I went. I just wish there was more time in the day to knit!
Hope you have fantastic week, stay warm where ever you are!


  1. I'm knitting right now too. I saw Sarah's in person and loved it. I need to finish a sock first before I can get back at it. Can't wait to see yours.

  2. that looks like it will be perfect. pockets too! very nice.

  3. I love the cables. I can't wait to see how it fits when you are finished. Knitting just rocks. Winter knitting in particular is the best!

  4. Astor is on my list too. Just need to order more peruvia quick - i used mine up on a top down jacket i finished several months ago. I'm glad i knit it because i'm getting tons of wear out of it but i haven't forgotten about the astor. Love the color you chose!

  5. oh, yay!!!!
    i LOVE that you are making that...
    it is quick! you will be finished before you know it...
    and i can't wait to see!

  6. can't wait to see either! I hope you love it!!
