How are your knitting projects going? My dark purple Aran is on hold, I’d switched to another lovely pattern out of a Vogue book, only to realise after knitting a Chanel trim band for the bottom that it’s a 12-ply rather than 8-ply (DK) pattern, silly me. I’m rather large, so could possibly take an 8-ply pattern and knit the smallest size in 12-ply, but of course, not the other way around! May be able to adapt it if I really think about it!
The big fabric chain here, Lincraft, were selling off their winter knitting wool stocks, and they had some lovely 12-ply in a grey blue for only 99c (about 40p), so have started a husky man’s Aran for my new son in law. Up to the armholes on the back.
It’s spring here, in short sleeved tops, all the winter woolies packed away. Yesterday was about 7C above average at 28! Are your Autumn days geting chilly already?
