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.

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.
