493 sts

Nr 3 on my 12 UFOs in 2014 Knitalong:


Colour Affection aka Ode to my trip to Finland

Yarn: Thin Pirkkalanka purchased in Helsinki 2012
Needles: 4mm

 





It turned out huuuuuge! Well over two meters long!
Lovely, mindless knit, just lots and lots of garter stitch with a little interest added in watching the short rows take effect.
I really like this yarn - it's sort of rustic but actually softer than I thought it would be, and knits up really light and bouncy. The colours are bright and lovely too, and there are many more in the range. As is often the case with scandinavian yarns, it's not easily available from abroad although....watch this space...changes may be afoot at squeaky elliot!

Also want to take the opportunity to wish everyone a belated hapus Dydd Gŵyl Dewi - Happy St David's day!

 

Caerphilly was full of daffodils galore on Saturday, and Morrisons had sold out of pork and leek sausages by 11am, but I do think that Google said it best of all:
