Happy Friday everyone!
I am really looking forward to this weekend because not only has spring finally sprung, but my mum is coming to visit! She hasn't seen Bean in 10 weeks and he has changed so much.
Here he is, this week, enjoying another gorgeous hand knit cardigan made by a friend of mine.
I have a new knit too....
Pattern: TGV (High Speed Knitting) by Susan Ashcroft
This is a great simple pattern. I did the increases as written and thought the top edge felt a little tight, but it is still comfortable to wear. I wish I could have made the ribbing a little deeper, but I would have had to sacrifice length and I think the length is perfect for me.
Yarn: Handmaiden Casbah
80% Merino / 10% Cashmere / 10% Nylon
The yarn is glorious and the colour may be my most favourite I have ever knit. I cannot tell you how much I love this yarn. I wish I could bath in it.
I wanted to include a modelled shot but unfortunately this means you get a poorly lit bathroom pic. The colour is most accurate in the first photo.
The best part about this knit is that it will always remind me of our first travels as a family of five to my family's homeland, Wales.
