Two little projects got ‘done and dusted’ this weekend.
I’m looking forward to seeing them on their recipients.
So pleased I managed to find the cutest buttons:
The Striped Cardigan (Debbie Bliss) is knitted in The Wool Company Merino Possum in the Tamarillo, Natural and Coffee colourways. Coffee is no longer available which is a pity. However, new season colours are coming out soon: it will be interesting to see if any additional colourways are added.
The possum cardigan is knitted for an eight year old girl. What is interesting is that I did the entire cardigan with only 300gms of possum yarn (1 ball each of natural and coffee and 2 balls of tamarillo, but there was a lot left over of the coffee and tamarillo – enough at least for a hat and some more). In contrast, Pumpkin took 5 balls (250gms) of pure wool, yet it is sized for a one to two-year old.
The possum is so soft and snuggly and light. I have a severe case of ‘I-want-my-own-now’!
