Work has been quite busy – The move to Agile and a pretty heavy training course with lots of home work has stolen my blogging time. I have, however, managed to keep up my “Commuting Knitting” 🙂
Can you guess what I’ve made? Is the title of this post a spoiler?
Ok – here it is…
This is the pattern photo…
I went to the Knitting and Stitching show at Olympia in March and sought out Purl Alpaca. I bought the kit to make Camilla and two other projects (coming soon!) I was so pleased with Icon I had to go back and have more 🙂
So how was Camilla to knit? Surprisingly detailed! There are 4 panels, divided by a cable. The panels have lace and bobbles that you juggle while working the decreases for the hat. Sounds hard? Not so bad as the pattern was really clearly written – I was very happy working though it on a long circular needle and “magic looping” on the train.
So want to see more?
Here’s one of the lovely way the panels and cables meet at the crown…
And a side view…
Blurry photo of me from the front!
All that’s missing is something matching to go around my neck…
…Watch this space – kit no. 2 from Purl Alpaca coming up!!
