I’ve finished my holiday project! It was Butterfly from Rowan 37. I finished the knitting on holiday but then couldn’t seem to find the time to finish it off. But now I have and I’m so pleased. It's such a nice top, pretty, floaty, delicate and frivolous. I loved knitting this for the following reasons:
1. It used kid silk haze and beads (always a good combination!)
2. It was incredibly quick to knit
3. It was easy enough to be done in the car etc but still involved enough complications to keep it fun
and best of all…
4. It only took just over one ball of KSH to knit. Honestly I’ve just weighed my second ball and there was 16g out of the 25g left. Plus I got the yarn free from Rowan last time I joined so it was even more of a bargain.
I would definitely knit this pattern again. In fact I probably will, probably in green or grey.
Note also the new skirt I bought in the Monsoon sale today! I had to queue for a very long time but it was half price…
