Eye Candy

Shop bought

I'm prepared to admit that there is a very special occasion that occurs once a year not too far away..... There was a little thing on my shoulder whilst I was in my local yarn shop yesterday - on an errand of mercy no less - whispering in my ear. The above is what I came out with!! Some Louisa Harding Sari Ribbon and Kimono Ribbon. I can tell they are going to be presents I like the feel of neither of them and the Kimono Ribbon is a pain to work with because the point of the needle - no matter how blunt - pierces the ribbon and gets caught. No fun. However, they will make beautiful garments - what ever they turn out to be.

Home Made

Gwen For my sister
Pattern: Rowan 39
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Cotton in Teal blue
Started: Mid August 2006
Finished 11 November 2006
Comments Everyone I know that has knitted this pattern has had to purchase more yarn. In my case, I was saved by eBay and the marvelous Joyce, who had some in stock - this colour has been discontinued for some time. Other than that, the pattern was a relatively quick knit - it's a cropped top. The slipped cable stitch was a new one for me and I like the out come.

Finished Gwen is lovely, I may make a start on this come Spring. I really like the colour you have used.

I look forward to seeing what the Louisa Harding stuff becomes. I have fondled this stuff a few times, such lovely colours, but have been put off by the thought of it being tricky to knit with.

Gwen looks great, can we see your sister modelling her.
Hope sleeve island is going well.
