Today I will show you the progress of one of my latest knitting projects. It is Noah from Rowan Homestead Classics, a rustic collection of 15 designs inspired by the crafts and textiles of the American pioneer. All designs are from Martin Storey.

I have already knitted Amos from this booklet, but it is still waiting for setting in the sleeves.

Meanwhile I have casted on Noah and I’m really happy with it. It is featuring big cable details on front, back and sleeves. I have used Rowan Yarns Lima in shade 890 Bolivia. I love this yarn, it is soft and it has a great stitch definition, especially for cables, and it has memory, cause of its chain construction. I really love to knit with it. And I have ordered a lot of this yarn for my this years winter wardrobe. On the CBS (Cindi Brumpton Scale for Rating Yarn) it rated LOVE 2!

The cables are really lovely, aren’t they?

But because the cables are knitted in separate stripes there is a big mess on the back!

Noah, what a Mess!

Another time I have to endlessly weave in ends! Hope Noah will be done until the end of the month.

What’s on your needles?
