Simple Style

One of the projects I'm currently knitting up for myself is the Offset Raglan Cardigan from Simple Style. First of all, this is a really great book! Ann Budd has done a fabulous job of compiling a group of very talented designers! There are 19 designs in all, and quite a few that I'm interested in making for myself.

Secondly, I am in love with the yarn that I'm using. It's Venezia Worsted from Cascade Yarns. This blend of merino wool and silk is so easy to knit with. The silk gives the yarn a really beautiful sheen and drape, and the merino wool is so soft and squishy! I'm using color #112, Pink Lady...are you surprised?!

We have both the book and the yarn at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop. Stop by and check them out!

I'll post a picture soon...
