I am not the type that blames her instruments for faulty workmanship. But look at the difference a quality camera makes!
This is three repeats of the "test" Voyager stole. Details are:
Size: small (co 60)
yarn: 4ply from Nundle Woollen Mills, Gardenia
3 pattern repeats
I really like this pattern. It's not too difficult (in my opinion) but is a step up from beginner lace patterns. Noice.
I am making a full size of the stole as a gift for a friend who is getting married in mid October. And this is the yarn.
2 ply silk/merino from The Knittery in the Denim colourway (blue is her favorite colour). It feels luscious. And I think it will look great in this stole pattern.
UPDATE: bugger just got thrown out of Blogger.
On another knitting related note, I thought I would ask you a question. I am looking to expand my knitting library. I have a great stash of crochet pattern and reference books but only a couple of knitting books (I dont think Jo Sharp mags count do they?).
So the question is, "If there was one knitting book you HAD to have, what would it be?"
Have a ponder on that and feel free to post suggestions!! :)
