Having treated myself to this gorgeous wool
I knew I had to find something worthy of its luxury...
So I trawled
(gotta love that place) and settled on this beauty by Vicky Chan.
Having fallen in love with the pattern and the wool I got cracking and hooked it up in a couple of weeks (I'm a speedy hooker...)
but then promptly LOST IT in Reading town centre a week later. Imagine my frustration . I just hope that whoever found it is wearing it and enjoying it and that it hasn't ended up in landfill.
Roll on one year and I found myself at Unravel 2014. So, seeing as it was near my Birthday I decided to go for it and replace the lost cardi. Skein Queen didn't let me down although it was hard to choose...I finally settled on some 4-ply lovelieness in pretty much the same colour as the last one.
And.....Ta Dah! Cardi Number 2...
Look at all those tulips and leaves... I love this pattern
so much I'm planning on doing another one in cream
I will NOT lose this one though...
