Hello my lovelies,
Whoop! Whoop! A Ta Daahhh. I am sooo happy about this one.
I can't quite believe it but it really is two years ago that I started Noyeaux.
I saw it on ravelry and fell in love. Trouble was it was a catalogue of disasters from the very beginning. My lovely friend Carolyn picked up the yarn in Canada for me and sent it off.
It took over six weeks to arrive and poor Carolyn was doing her pieces she was so anxious about it's arrival. Then when I cast on I was unsure about the size as my usual seemed big so I started on the smallest.
This seemed tiny! Then the shaping wasn't straight forward so after finishing the back I shelved it. I have thought about it over the last couple years but something else always took my fancy. Anyway I picked it up last week and it just flew off of my needles. It needed some serious blocking to make it the right shape. Then it sat around for a couple more days before I stitched it up which is also unusual for me. Love it! Love it! Love it! I should have finished it ages ago. The shape is very flattering and the Blackstone tweed is soft, warm, cosy and makes me feel great.
Enjoy your week
