Alice Starmore 'Inishmaan' Sweater
I finally finished my first Alice Starmore sweater, 'Inishmaan' knitted in Loganberry coloured yarn. The charted cable patterns are easy to follow and once into the swing of things not difficult at all, but keeping a note of what row you are on is important.
The knotwork up the centre front panel is my favourite, the back centre panel is not quite so decorative as the front. Overall it is a beautiful pattern and very satisfying to finish. Now I want to knit another of the Starmore patterns, maybe St. Brigid.
I've read in several places that Alice Starmore's books are going to be published again, not before time. The second hand books available on Amazon are way beyond my price tag.
