A touch of knitting
Thought I would show you a knit that I completed autumn last year, its called Autumn Flurries and is a Garnstudio Drops design I think number 113-15. Karisma is the yarn used, which I bought last February in Tromso, Norway. I can hardly believe that its nearly a year ago since our wonderful trip on Hurtigruten to see the Northern Lights, ah memories. But anyhow back to the knit, if your a knitter am sure you will understand when I tell you that the hem was started off with 600 odd stitches for the frill, hmmmm!! how many times did I have to count them before I got it right, now that would be telling but suffice to say more than 5 but less than ten and yes it did get frustrating. I did ask a couple of people to check the stitches for me but they declined I wonder why? The yarn is 100%wool and gives lovely stitch definition...and what with the weather being rather "brass monkies" here in good ol' blighty, it is easy comfy and great to wear especially with leggings and some cosy comfy bootie slippers ah bliss....enjoy. x
