Designer Knitting - Rib and Cable Cardigan

The Rib and Cable Cardigan

Rainbow over the Lake of Constance
almost the same color as my Rib Cable cardigan

The beginning took place on the lake

Magazine - Designer Knitting

Pattern - Cable Rib Jacket

The preview can be seen here

Yarn - 100 % wool - bought from Scotland

Knitting time: Started - On the very last day in July 2009
Finished - Sunday 29th of August 2009
except Buttons..
Buttons - Gemstones - Jasper

I love to use Gemstones as buttons, not only are they much less expensive than "real" buttons they are unique and always have a history..
Jasper is very common stone and is found throughout the world
and many times used in the fashion world.

Jasper is one of the birth stones listed for the Sun Sign of Virgo. It is also the Mystical birthstone for the month of October. Jasper is an ornamental rock composed mostly of chalcedony, microcrystalline quartz, in association with other minerals, which give it colourful bands and patterns.

Soon finished

Finished - only the Gemstone buttons
are still missing....

The future skirt to go with it
(will be done soon)

Porom from Brooklyntweed
to go with it..
with closeup of the Jasper Gemstones
(Click on the pic to enlarge)

The catwalk will be done soon!
