I have finished the top in the cotton bought from Lidl. It was quick and easy, and I am pleased with the result.
I have sleeved and sleeveless versions:
The pattern has been written up, and I am just waiting the statutory few days so that when I do the final proof read there is a chance I see what is really there, not what I think is there…!!
Meanwhile, I am working on the other pack of the same yarn. This is a beach or pool cover-up for babies and children. Being cotton it can also be used as a towel.
This yarn is very good for the price. It is soft and the colours are good. The only down side is that there have been more knots than there should be – but at £3.99 for 300 g, I feel I have no right to complain!
Incidently, now having the English version of the Estonian book, I know that this stitch pattern, called Candle Light or Fern in Shetland, is called Lilac Leaf in Estonia…
