My current project

I’m working on some kind of “basic cardy” now. I'm not using any particular pattern for this project, just have some idea in my head. It’s going to be a cardigan with raglan sleeves, small pockets at the front and may be with few buttons.

I’m knitting with Debbie Bliss pure silk in apricot colour, which I have bought on ebay recently but I’m not very happy with the quality of the yarn. I’ve got mixed impression about this yarn. It’s incredibly soft, warm and silky and it has very bright pretty colour and shine. I absolutely love touching it. But it’s not the best yarn to work with. It twits and knots itself frequently and has very uneven texture. There are a lot of sections where the yarn is either very thin or really thick. So it’s very difficult to keep an even gauge and it’s not possible to discard all bad sections because of they quantity.

Anyway I hope I will finish this project soon and hopefully it will be good enough as casual cardigan.
