Production knitter


I'm having a great run
the patterns for Clipper and the Elann cardigan have been graded and finished.
Atlante from Naturally is a 2nd generation bamboo yarn with incredible drape (by 2nd generation I mean that the things that used to annoy me about bamboo yarn - bittiness and splitting are not present in this one) this looks like a dress because I do not have a 2 year old to display it on - but it is actually a thigh length top, the hem is weighted slightly with beads and the deep points are irresistible. The ribbon can be pulled tight to ruche the bodice or left loose with a bow. The pattern has been written, just need to organise testing.
Flash's vest is coming along nicely - I'm still loving that yarn, I have to stop every couple of rows and admire it - very enjoyable.
Machine knitting a jacket for myself, we're off to Christchurch on friday for Holly's graduation and apparently it is VERY cold already, saddle shoulder, simple stocking st with hems and a scarf style collar, maybe some stitch detail on the hems...not sure yet.
Stay warm!
