Finished outfit! Sirdar sweater and denim skirt

I’m cracking on with my stash busting list, and I’ve a whole outfit to show you today.  Outside pics too – it must be Spring!

My skirt is Vogue 1247  and the sweater is a pattern by Sirdar.  I can’t find a separate knitting pattern for this (it was in Knitting magazine, April 2014) but the Ravelry link gives all the details here.  The yarn is Rowan Purelife cotton – gorgeous.

This is the first time I’ve done so much cabling, and I’m rather proud of it!  I did have to rip out my first attempt (there was a mistake in the chart so a cable twisted the wrong way).  But I hadn’t got very far so it was good practice.

I haven’t made this skirt pattern for a while, and had forgotten how lovely it is.  So easy, and the shape and those pockets are great.  It’s also much easier now I have an overlocker, and don’t have to bind every seam.  I lengthened the pattern by 8 inches, as usual for me.
