1stpictureThe yarn purchased last year....a soft blend of 80% cotton and 20% angora. This discontinued colour was 50% off so it became my colour of choice.
2nd picture The pattern, especially for this yarn.
3rd picture And I'm knitting. I thought if I start now I may have some sort of garment completed by summer! I swatched for tension on the suggested 5 mm needles and came up with a swatch way too big. My knitting must be loose; after a few tries of different needle sizes, 4 mm gave me the correct swatch size.
