This week I started a garment with some stash yarn, knowing that I would need more and luckily the extra arrived before I had finished what I had on hand, so I had no down time while waiting for my other yarn to arrive (and I'm glad that it took a bit longer than expected because now that it is here I don't want to blog, or garden or edit, cook or walk. I just want to knit)
The tunic dress is another useful item for 2-10 year olds, easy to pop on over leggings and a polyprop or skivvy, the pocket gives it a wee edge and can be adorned with intarsia, bobbles or buttons as you see fit.
As you can see it is not quite finished, so when I have finished blogging, and had a walk, I will take it up again and finish it.
I have promised myself that when I have finished the tunic dress and written the pattern up nicely and asked for test knitters, when I have reviewed the cherub tech edit and when I have come up with a nice lace insert pattern for another wee frippery in the wings, then and only then will I be allowed to start working with this yummy Poems sock yarn from Wisdom yarns. I love it, the yarn is similar to Noro kureyon sock, but with longer colour changes and the colourways do not jar with my sensibilities the way Noro yarns sometimes do ( I have never been one to be completely "at one" with the Noro)
I've already tested some ideas using silk garden sock, a simple tank top in a simple lacey stripe, somewhat Missoni inspired and structurally basic so that the yarn is the star. I just can't wait to get going!!
