Sometimes you've got to have a rest from the hard fun*, and do some easy fun.
Pattern: Cloud Bolero by Ysolda Teagu
Source: Free from yarn forward magazine site
Yarn: Cleckheaton Merino Supreme in pink.
Size: Small (for my daughter)
I noticed on ravelry people were struggling with round 20 - some say there's a mistake. I just did what Ysolda told me to do and the stitch count came out perfectly. So if there is a mistake on those projects on ravelry it isn't Ysolda who made it (in the small size anyway). But it is a bit tricky.
Beautiful yarn too, shame it's been discontinued.
Also, I used a little sheep button I got from my lys because Blair liked it, but the satin ribbon used in the pattern looks better. If I can convince her to let the sheep go, I'll be replacing it with chocolate satin ribbon. Yum.
I'm waiting on yarn to arrive so I can get on with the rest of the Cable Luxe Tunic. It might be a few weeks before it gets ordered, and a few weeks for delivery after that (I got a great price tho). I want to have it finished before Bendigo, where I intend to wear it to the ACS breakfast. (Getting VERY EXCITED now!)
I'm considering yarn choice for Morrigan, which is going to be knit in tandem with the cabled tunic.
I have started a neibling - in colourmart cashmere silk, 2/60nm - apple green. That's right - NOT PINK! It's a very difficult but addictive knit - 2mm needles, gossamer weight and about a thousand travelling 2 stitch cables as well as the yarnovers to contend with - not to mention a sprinkling of slip 6, knit6 tog, pass 6 sso - I shit you not. It's my idea of fun!
