Laburnum Rising

I recently cast-on for Laburnum. The yarn is NatureSpun sport not my usual choice, but since they are a demo pair for a class and I needed to use sportweight, I used what was on hand. These are working up quickly and the pattern is an easy 5 stitch, 4 row repeat, one of the things I love about SKS.

I used the Twisted German cast-on for the first time and if you haven't used it before give it a try. It makes an excellent stretchy cast-on and is the best I've encountered so far. I'm going to try a few others so that I'll have a point of reference as to the pros and cons of each.


I also took a picture of the missing Openwork Ribs.
