Woven Opal in Kingsand


Paprika Patterns Opal Cardigan

I’m off on holiday soon (to Reykjavik/New York/Boston), so work is busy at the moment as I try to wrap things up , and – of course – I’ve filled my evenings trying to make new garments/accessories for my holiday. I’ve knitted a new hat (I just have the pompom to attach) and have made good progress on a Clare Coat. I still have a long to-do list, but I find that as a holiday approaches the list items tend to look less and less essential! My main goal is not to be frantically making the finishing touches to my coat in the taxi to the airport.

As it’s been a busy week and I should be heading to bed, this is just a quick post to note that there is a short post by me on the Paprika Patterns’ blog, on the subject of making the Opal Cardigan pattern in a woven fabric.

I’ve already blogged my Opal Cardigans here, but couldn’t resist posting these photos taken during a recent weekend trip to Cornwall. These photos were taken in Cawsand and Kingsand, where my parents were renting a house for a week. This is actually close to where my brother will be getting married this time next year – expect lots of photos then!

  1. Lovely photos and your Opal cardigan looks very cosy. Is it wool?

  2. I thought it was a coat too – looks exactly like the news coat/class pattern from Sew Over It – the Chloe Cost – even has patch pockets too. Great photos x

  3. Lovely photos. I love the hat too, what’s the pattern?
