Kim Hargreaves' Precious
I love Kim Hargreaves designs and Precious from her Dark House Collection, Heartfelt is no exception. It's knitted in Kidsilk Haze (and beads) with no pattern modifications at all and I chose the smoky grey colour because I'd tried on the one Kate had made last December so I knew it was what I wanted with this skirt and a t-shirt. It seemed a shame to be knitting an identical one but we decided sharing would be too difficult. It's going to be just the thing for any posh going out we might do while we're here in France and it's our 40th wedding anniversary later in August so I'm sure to need it then!
It's very funny being here with no children or grandchildren after such a concentrated time with them over the last almost-year and I'm missing them very much indeed - it doesn't seem right without them but I'm sure I'll adjust.
And just when I could do without a new challenge I've had to join Socktopus's mystery Lace KAL -Aurantium Blossom-and I love the name!! Despite not having the perfect yarn here with me and without my favourite lace knitting needles.
At least I think I've joined as the biggest challenge of all is that this is happening via a Twibe on Twitter....hmm new words to me.... I really could have done without this tweeting and I'm not finding it easy. I think I've signed up to Twitter and I think I've joined the KAL.....We'll see.
