This gorgeous Colinette Giotto has been hiding in my stash since I bought it at the Knit and Stitch Show at Alexander Palace last October. It is a really nice colourway called Rose Garden. Originally, it was intended to be knitted up into a big jacket but I changed my mind. I saw the Cate tie front cardi made up on a knitting blog I stumbled across (can't remember which) and fell in love with it. It's a Colinette pattern and is very simple and quick. I like simple designs - Colinette yarns are so beautiful that they don't need lots of fussy details. The left front knitted up in an evening and the sleeve was finished at work yesterday. At this rate it will be finished at the weekend.
As soon as this one is finished I am going to cast on for the Green Gable top. I've joined the Knitalong and have noticed that several other knitters have chosen the same colour Cotton Fleece as me. It's called Wisteria and is a lovely pale purple. The yarn itself is very soft and should knit up well.
