Oh summer loving!

Here is me wearing a dandelion and a butterfly skirt and the sun came out for the piccy. I finished the cardigan last week and the two skirts I was making today. The skirt fabric I bought from Crista's Quilts on a whim a couple of months ago it is so bright and happy just the thing for summer days. I tried a couple of patterns before I settled on Butterick 4461. The sizing on the pattern is a little strange but the finished skirt is exactly what I was wanting.The Dandelion christened my lovely Britany needles that I bought a couple of months ago and I have to say they are fantastic!! I don't know about other knitters but I like to try knitting with my eyes shut (just incase I ever lose my sight I will still be able to knit) and you know you can knit whole rows with these lovely needles because they don't stick at all!! I have cast on Saffron from also from Rowan mag 41 and they are long enough to hold both front and back fantastic, sorts my urge for two at a time! I am knitting it in Carmen Rowan Handknit cotton which was also in my stash and will go with the other skirt I just made. Why may you ask am I casting on more stuff when I am making ms3. Well my lovely yarn seems to have been lost in the post. The woolly Workshop has sent me out another lot today so hopefully I will get something tomorrow and I can start clue 1 before clue 3 is released. If they don't arrive tomorrow it will be next week as we are expecting an other postal strike on Friday.


  1. The cardigan is so pretty, and well done for knitting it so quickly! The skirt is fab too - just need some nice summery weather now :-)
    Hope the wool arrives safely soon.

  2. Very nice. Well done they look fantastic together & that material is gorgeous!

  3. Very pretty, the blue in the cardigan matches the blue in the skirt exactly, and so summery. I don't know about the ms3, I know I signed up but am begining to have second thoughts.

  4. This is so nice! Sorry to hear about the MS3 yarn, I hope it shows up soon!

  5. Your Dandelion is gorgeous! :
    I think on knit it in blue too
