Specs:

Pattern: Sorello by Georgie Hallam

Yarn – Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury

Needles – 4mm circular and DPN

Timing: 15th June 2014 – 12 November 2014 (still sitting on the table waiting to be posted)

Yards –  I had a fair bit left over – enough for a head band or beanie to match?

Modifications – One slight “modification” to the sleeves (It was a mistake really as missed a knit front and back which meant 5 fewer stitches than required) to make them less puffy.

I seem to be travelling well with this knit.  Another ?10cm and the sleeves and I am done.  Maybe it will get to my niece in time…..

I cast on a new project last week.  It won’t make its deadline but my nieces are used to that.  I had an overwhelming sense of procrastination over this project but I don’t think it was about the project so much as a feeling of a lack of time and a self-imposed pressure to get it done – in typical style for me that means just don’t do it!

The yellow is so happy & cheery that so far it has been a pleasure and, for now, it is growing at an amazing rate.  As a result of knitting this the Susanna IC KAL is languishing but I’ll get back to that soon.

So, here is the beginning of another Sorello by Tikki:

I love this pattern – the way Tikki designs them is so easy to use & follow & the results are always fantastic.  This photo really doesn’t do justice to the yarn colour.  It’s due on the 25th October but will most likely be delivered at Christmas…..maybe there will be a miracle!

 

 

 

When I finished the last pair of socks, I also finished off Sorella for my niece.  They got bundled off together & were well received.  I need to order yarn for my other niece for November but haven’t quite got there yet.  Next week.

This gift was completed before the event but not posted in time.  The Solitaire Beret by Natalie Larson from Weekend Hats – originally I had borrowed this book from the library but it was so good I bought a copy.

I knitted this version in Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury.  Next time I’d knit it in a needle size smaller to give a firmer feel to the fabric otherwise I am pretty happy.  I am going to post this off to it’s recipient tomorrow and it will be a bit of a surprise as I gave her a gift last week so she wont expect it…
