So it is July the peek of summer but us knitters know this is the time to finish off those winter WIP's in time to wear next season. This yarn is from Minerva Crafts. It is called King Cole fashion Aran which I made into my favourite top down pattern Sunkist by Kirsten Kapur. It comes in those huge 400g balls. This colourway is 440 Mull with a little green and ochre flecks in it. I used one and then needed to go into the next one for the borders.
Are you a blocker? Do you 'always' block your knitting?
Come on now tell the truth...
I was disappointed with the finish on the border, maybe I should have cast off on a larger pair of needles but a wash and block sorted it out in no time.
I am also pleased that it goes with my tartan summer dress and my Amy Butler patch skirt so this one won't be a useless wardrobe item.
I am going to save this one and put it in our local horticultural and crafts show in September - if the weather doesn't turn on me and I end up wearing it first! We are away next week and I will refrain from packing it for a seaside holiday.
Thanks Minerva. Jo xx
