Finally, something other than baby cardigans for Pine Ridge. This is a Christmas gift for someone. Who will it be? I used the Skein of Tosh Light bought in Amsterdam earlier this year. The pattern, Reyna by Noora Laivola, is ideal because the openwork showcases the lovely peacock colour of the yarn, instead of fighting with it, as some lace patterns do. It's a free pattern on Ravelry.
But, of course, I have also turned out two of these - 43 and 44. We've been on the road a bit, and I find it soothing to knit while listening to downloads of Radio 4s "Soul Music" on my Mp3. Takes the edge off, I find.
