Today new yarns arrived.
The last ball of discontinued Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran #9 from Loop so I can make the other wrist warmer, and four balls of Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran for making this. I almost got the aubergine, but Astrid likes red, so I’ll let her have red. This time at least because it will match her new ankle boots.
For the garter stitch jacket I used Rowan Pure Wool Aran in Pepper, which is just so gorgeous and yummy I think I’ll make myself something in it too. The buttons are from Loop. Their delivery was so quick â€“ I only ordered yesterday morning. This is the moment I just want my brain to think of a clever finishing line so I can get back downstairs to the cable. And it fails me. Ok. Right. Gotta knit!
