All Rivery was it.

Moose Rivery, that is. I knitted one:

Pattern: Moose River by Stephen West
Yarn: Briar Rose Fibers - Charity
Needle: US 8 - 5mm

It's unblocked as of right now, but that hasn't stopped Bruce from wearing it. Also, this color is not representative of what it looks like for reals. It's a lot greener.I'll get some action shots after I've blocked it.

The pattern has got reversible cables, which I'd never knitted before, and they're genius. I love them. Also, the pattern is incredibly well written, and really sexy.

The title of the post was inspired by this lovely short film of Joyce & Beckett playing golf (warning, contains a lot of language. Foul and filthy. It's brilliant):

I'm also knitting an Avebury shawl by Kristen Kapur. I just happened to have the exact yarn in the exact quantity that she called for in the pattern, and I've had it for a while and have been debating what to do with it, so, it called to me, and knitting it I am. Simple, elegant, and the yarn (Alchemy Silk Purse) is DIVINE.
