Colinette Rive Gauche

Here are my finished items so far this holiday.

I am so pleased with this.....



It is knitted on 4mm needles in Colinette Parisienne - the lovely new mohair yarn -70% kid mohair, 30% polyamid. It is so soft and very fine but lovely to knit and the finished feel is wonderful. I did it in colourway Jay 85 which is the colour used in the pattern book. I did the smallest size and short sleeves so it only took 3 hanks I think ( I've got one over and I'm sure I bought the patterns recommended 4).

I shall be knitting more of the designs from the Parisienne pattern book - there's a lovely beaded shrug which will be a very special winter wardrobe addition

Debbie Bliss Lace and Bobble Jacket:




This was knitted for the AY Knitalong. I adapted my version to have short sleeves although they are perhaps still slightly longer than I would have ideally liked.

I did the small size and took 8 balls of DB cotton DK in Lime 20 using 4mm needles. It is modelled by my daughter.

Hi kathryn how are you doing? Your Debbie Bliss Lace and Bobble Jacket is absolutely gorgeous. So far this is the first DB L&B jacket I've seen on blogland. You did a fantastic job.
