Good gosh, where does the time go? I have been meaning to post for days but something always seems to get in the way. We have had a busy week here, which included one quick trip to casualty and Dylan starting a different school, he is spending a term at a language centre which should bring his Welsh on a treat.
Salina is almost finished, in fact all seamed just the cuffs to attach. It would have been finished sooner but for this...
Debbie Bliss cashmerino chunky, simply gorgeous, very soft and silky, lovely deep colour. Irritatingly big needles but once you get going the knitting simply flies along. The pattern is from Rowan Junior and is well written, a fact that I failed to realise and deciding that I knew better than the good people at Rowan I studied the pattern, messed about a great deal with tape measures and came to the conclusion that their instructions would not create a garment of the length worn by the model. According to my calculations it would only reach the top of Tilly's bum, so I made it quite a lot longer. Ha! I thought, you won't catch me out this time, I have checked the pattern carefully and made the necessary adjustments instead of just following it blindly, I will not be disappointed.
It would appear I had not allowed for the fact that the weight of such a "big" yarn would cause it to hang rather longer. As you can see it is a little big, let's hope the yarn wears well because Tilly will certainly get a couple of years out of this knit.
Salina soon, I am pleased to say that it seems to be fitting just fine.
