A little while ago, some lovely Jesse cotton yarn from Louisa Harding caught my eye, so - as one does - I duly bought the yarn and the pattern book to match, and stashed it away, determined not to start yet another new knitty project before I'd finished the previous one.
Fast forward a month or so, and I hauled it out again thinking it'd be the perfect project to keep me occupied on our road trip north to Scotland for Christmas.
And it was.
I pretty much knitted all the way there, and all the way back, and a wee bit in between as well.
It's just a simple little cotton top knitted in a lovely lacy stitch. The front and back are identical so once you've got used to the pattern, it's pretty straightforward. And the pattern is very clear and well laid out row-by-row, so if you can operate a row counter, you're all set ; - )
I like the little scalloped edge effect too.
And whilst we're talking all things knitty - I received this lovely book as a gift at Christmas . . .
It's been on my wish list for a wee while and it's filled with a myriad of knitty seasonal patterns
- 52 in all. Wouldn't it be lovely to have the time to knit a project a week for a whole year ?
One can but dream . . .
But I am loving the wavy striped scarf on the cover so that's definitely going on my list.
Linking up with Ginny and the Yarn Along over at Small Things today - do pop over and have a peek at what other knitty folk are up to.
Wishing you the happiest of weeks, and thinking of our bloggy friends who're enduring the freezing temps and seemingly endless storms that are currently battering around. Stay safe & warm,
'til next time
