Eriskay revisited

One finished fairisle cardigan, completely improvised following pattern fail.

The main yarn is grey-with-slight-blue-flashes cashmere/wool laceweight I picked up from the bargain bin on the Knitwitches stall at Woolfest back in June. It is quite seriously adorable.

Lots of colours (I think I can see 13 in that picture, but I may have missed some…) of Jamiesons/ Jamieson & Smith Shetland yarn.

Looksee! Tangledy seaweed and waves crashing on beaches, and machair flowers, with a side order of bog, all translated into fairisle.

I do like a nice raglan…

Sparkly shell buttons, from a little gallery in Portree.

I have other knitting to show you, but enough brain power to shape sentences, and there is apparently a whole other week until halfterm.
