I am so excited to have finished this beautiful sweater this morning. It is "Rosebud" from the very gorgeous Sublime kid mohair book. I fell in love with this pattern the moment I saw it and just happened to have enough white mohair yarn in my stash. This was a really easy knit that is made more special by the addition of the knitted roses. I love it! There are several other patterns in the Sublime book that I would like to make, in particular the Drama Queen cardigan. I have already cast on the Amour scarf with some Sublime Kid Mohair that I bought on sale from Black Sheep Yarns.
Also recently finished...
...another Sweet November. This time I used Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo which is a lovely soft, drapey yarn. I may try this pattern in a wool yarn next as I love the design and find it very wearable.
I've been working on some simple crochet coasters between projects using some old craft cotton . It doesn't take much time to whip up one of these and they will be pretty handy.
I finished this simple lace scarf knitted from 2 balls of Sirdar Just Soya a while back and forgot to take pictures. So here it is...
The soya yarn is nice to work with and very soft. I have a few more balls of this in my stash, also purchased in a charity shop for next to nothing, which will make nice scarves or gloves.
