I made this little wrap top/cardigan for a soon-to-be-born baby of an old friend. I started out knitting something different entirely, but after making a few mistakes realised I wasn't in the frame of mind for a knitting challenge (work, etc.) But I was however in the mood for some garter stitch and a lovely yarn and a pattern simple enough to follow while watching Borgen with subtitles late at night.
The pattern is this old favourite, (from a book by Erika Knight), and the yarn was a beautiful ball of Rowan Fine Tweed in deep fern-green, a gift from this store in my 'goodie bag' at last year's The Craft Sessions. I'm so happy I chose to use this yarn: I love the colour, it knits up beautifully and is firm but soft. Also, I had just enough to make this garment- there was about 20cms left when I was finished.
Speaking of The Craft Sessions, today is the last day to sign up. If you've been thinking about it but are still not sure, this new post is pretty lovely, and true, I think. Would you love to see you there.
Hope you have a relaxing weekend.
