It was all going so well, I was womanfully getting on with the sleeve of my sister's cardigan in between bits of housework when my tidying brought me up against this yarn:
And this pattern:
This is from the Colinette pattern book 'Rock Gods & Movie Stars'
I have had this yarn for ages but never knew what to do with it. A friend gave me the pattern book a year or so ago. I had never thought about putting them together before but as soon as I did, I had to cast on. I couldn't help myself.
Anyway it's knitted in one piece on 8mm needles and I cast on 149 stitches!
I am going to enjoy this pattern 😄
