My favourite colour

It's late and I just don't have the energy for words.

Manu by Kate Davies

Yarn: Berocco Ultra Alpaca Light
Colour: Oceanic Mix - the most beautiful rich and complex duck feather teal ever.
Needles: lots

Buttons: I bought these gorgeous turquoise and gold glass buttons at the craft show - they are very special.


Modifications: None. No, tell a lie, I made the pockets slightly smaller because of the comments on rav that said they were huge. They're still pretty big, so I'm glad.



And here's one of me in it. When did I get so old?


Happiness Rating: Inn of the sixth.

I think that it looks lovely, and that you look very svelte in it. If you insist that it doesn't suit, then I have some shoulders that need boosting...

Such a great colour and the buttons match perfectly! I think it looks great and I'm a big fan of a garment with a pocket!
