Bobbly Bouquets

This is what I'm working on at the moment - the first 12" x 12" square for my Aunty's afghan for Christmas.

It's the Bouquets pattern from the Vogue Stitchionary Vol. 1, and has a 30 row pattern repeat.

I'm using Cascade 220 yarn in the Lavender colourway (which I LOVE) and 5mm Knitpicks Options circs.

I just love the texture of this pattern - it's very 3-D and very touchy-feely - and I love knitting bobbles anyway. The more the merrier, I say. ;0)

I love the pattern, and colour. Nice blue cardigan too.

I lvoe it. I've not attempted bobbles yet but they look great and so does the blue cardi.

Cor Blimey! I haven't looked at your blog for ages, and I'd forgotten that you are the world's speediest knitter. How do you do it?!

Linda said...

Anni - Bobbles are addictive, if a bit time consuming. ;0)

Badger - Hey! Long time, no speak! How're you doing? As for being a speedy knitter ....... not really speedy, I just stay up all night knittingand don't get any sleep. That's why I look so rough all the time! *LOL*
That's my excuse anyway! ;0)
