Another birthday present arrived this week.
My family really are brilliant! My aunt (receiver of Beaufort mk 2 which she says she loves and can’t wait for it to get cold enough to wear) sent me Jo Sharp knit issue 5.
It’s the summer issue that’s been out in Australia for a few months with it being summer there at the moment. I’m not normally that much of a summer knitter but there’s some great stuff in here.
My favourite is this sleevless top which has 3 variations.
I’d probably actually knit the blue version in wool and wear it over a shirt indoors the colder months.
There are two versions of this cardi which again I might make in a wool or wool-blend rather than the recommended cotton.
I also like the cover cardigan which is made in alpaca silk georgette. I really want to try that yarn because it seems like it’s my perfect yarn – a blend of wool, alpaca and silk.
Cherie amour is progressing nicely. I am now past the waist and have split for the neckline.
