Woo Hoo …. my Chateau is finished! I absolutely love it and today was the perfect day to finish as it’s been really chilly here in Phoenix and it’s toasty warm. I know I will get a lot of wear out of this piece over the next few months :)
Pattern: Chateau by Melissa Schaschwary.
Yarn: 9 skeins of Patons Classic Wool Bulky in the color Dark Grey, which is 702 yards (641.9m) or 900 grams
Needles: US size 13 (9mm) circular knitting needle for the body and a size US 11 (8mm) circular knitting needle for the ribbing.
This pattern was truly a delight to knit and with the bulky weight, is a fast knit, I just had too many things going on, so it took me a little be longer to finish. Melissa’s pattern is well-written with step-by-step instructions but does include a chart for the cable design. I love the references provided for casting on and casting off, as well as the information on the measurement of the finished piece.
So, what’s now on the needles ….
I will be casting on a long time favorite, Irish Coffee by Thea Colman, Baby Cocktails. I’ve decided to use my stash of Rowan Felted Tweed (color #133 Midnight) for this project and think it will look quite nice in blue.
I also plan to work on my long forgotten Spring Forward Socks, which I have to share that the first one has been on the needles since October!
So what are you working on?
