I have put off writing this for quite a while. This is also a project that needs explaining as it doesn't quite look like it is supposed to. The pattern - Rapunzel by Aoibhe Ni Shuilleabhain has more of a u-neck, and I haven't yet decided whether or not I am going to add the buttons and ribbon next.
The pictures were taken the day after I finished stitching it all up, so the fit isn't quite there yet. It has stretched a little since then, the 'boaterish' neck has become more u-shaped and the sleeves no longer dig into my arms.
Did I mention Lindisfarne is radiantly beautiful? That arch is from the ruined medieval priory.
Lindisfarne Castle in the background. We walked there, but it was shut when we reached it :(
I am currently making a hooded cowl in Noro Silk Garden on circular needles (much fun) - I am very much in love with the colorway of Silk Garden - each rib has ended up a different colour, which is a wonderful effect. Indeed, I wish that Noro made skeins in the blue, pink and purple colours separately, as they are so rich, glorious colours (did I mention before that I tend to fall in love with colours rather than patterns or texture? Seriously, if it wasn't for this Silk Garden then knitting may have been abandoned once again).
