Here is Francesca's Anouk, luckily she loves it as much as I do.(I will be making one for myself)
I knitted it with Berroco Vintage colour 5121 worsted weight, never again. I did not like the yarn one little bit. Yes it was buttery soft and no, it was not splitty. It just had no substance, I bought it for the colour. It was the exact shade that Francesca wanted so I persevered. She is happy therefore I am happy.
On a sweeter note, just look what she ordered.
No, not the chocolate! look at the hamper! It is lovely.
The contents will be removed and I will make a liner for it.
Then it will be filled with my luscious skeins of sock yarn, they are in a plastic tub and deserve better, much better.
I have bought the Carbeth Cardigan pattern, written by the amazing Kate Davies. It is next on the list for both Fran and myself, I thought about using a chunky yarn but will use DK held double.
I have some pure wool in a dusty pink in the stash, Fran has laid claim to that. Guess what will be cast on later?
I have ordered some West Yorkshire Spinners Aire Valley in wine for another for her. I have used this in several projects and love the way it knits up, and it washes and wears beautifully. I will be knitting myself a colour block version from stash, fingers crossed that I have enough bits and bobs to make it up. There is always the option of stripes, or even a fade.
Anyhoo, time is running away with me and I am taking Fran out for the afternoon.
PS. Go steady with the eggs on Monday, I will. I have antacid for the others. xx
