Tea and Cables

Teacup from Louisa Harding's Queen of Hearts knitted in Filatura di Crosa Golden Line Superior. This yarn is a beautiful mix of cashmere and silk and held double knits up in this pattern really quickly and is so soft and light (the whole garment without buttons weighs less than 85 grams!

The pattern is very easy and I think I might make a few more, one in orange, one in grey and one in bright that wrong?

Yes, cotton stripe knit top (Sew U Home Stretch boat neck top by Wendy Mullins) and blue stretch denim skirt (Vogue 8604) are from Tessuti.

Teva Durham's Asymmetrical Cable Pullover looked a daunting project, but was really quite easy. I don't like reverse stocking stitch which the pattern specified for the whole garment, so I knitted regular stocking stitch, leaving one purl either side of each cable. The yarn is a silk/cotton mix called Birch also by Teva Durham; it's great to wear and washes beautifully in the machine. After knitting this I ordered more from for another Louisa Harding project.
