It's a lovely long bank holiday coming up and I'd planned to do some 'me' knitting. (Me knitting = selfish knitting = happy wife and mother - you know how these things are!) I've been mulling over knitting myself a cardigan of some sort over the last few weeks and these were the hot favourites.....
Both of which I love and the yarns suggested are scrumptious. However I'd probably need to add some length to both as I'm no where near as skinny as the models and I'm under no illusions that if I knit them as is I'd look like a fish on a bicycle! So, wanting some easy-peasy-just-follow-the-pattern knitting I came across this through my mis-spent time on Twitter....
Isn't it gorgeous? The best thing is that it's knitted using a DK weight yarn and 4mm needles so it should whizz off the needles! I'd planned to make it in the same colours as I love the muted colours of charcoal and beige but unfortunately Loop have all sold out of these colours.
However the beauty of the internet shone through yesterday and whilst googling the yarn, BC Garn's Allino I came across 2 German LYS's. The first, unfortunately, had sold out of the colours I wanted but the second Woll Werkstatt not only had it in stock but confirmed shipping today! Yippee!
The only problem is that because of the lovely long bank holiday weekend and there being nill post on Friday I'm not going to be able to start until next week! Oh well, at least I can knit my way through the flipping Royal Wedding!
Happy knitting and have a lovely bank holiday- whatever you're getting up to!
