Just popped by to say that yes I have started another Carbeth sweater and if you fancy following my progress on Instagram I’m joatvillagewoolly.
Having a lack a true sweater quantities of – well, anything – in my stash I had a brainwave… colour work. Do the ribs in one shade, a transitional band of fair isle, and then another colour (and repeat on the sleeves). The neck may be grey or it may be purple – it depends on how acute the ‘yarn chicken’ gets!
Here’s some pictures – the yarn is the same as the last one – Rico’s Alpaca dream – and it’s still wonderful to knit with. I’ve got tension/gauge with 7mm/6mm needles.
