the Bainbridge


Pattern: By Pepperknits. Clever and deceptively simple.
Yarn: Lana Liza Merino Diamond, which doens't seem to have any web presence. I got it from Rubi + Lana. Love this yarn, it's beautiful to work with with great stitch definition.
Needles: 3.5 bamboo circs.
Recipient: Sly Jatzman*
Mods: None, except next time I think I will adjust the position of one of the tabs just slightly rather than placing them symmetrically.
Verdict: This was officially a hit with the recipient who is about to go to Paris and Amsterdam. The weather's been quite balmy in Paris -mid 20s celcius- but cooler in Amsterdam so you never know, she may find a little bit of light, elegant warmth comes in handy.

You ARE making another one for yourself, yes? It looks too snuggly to give up.

Oh, how have I missed this?! That is one clever and gorgeous piece of knitting! And at least here in Northern Europe the nights are getting colder and colder again...

It is lovely - also loved the wrapping paper you used as well. Perfect for cool summer/autumn evenings.

This is SO cute! It's on my list too - maybe I should just cast on. It looks like a quick knit!

That's nice! I'm glad it was a hit with her, but good knitters usually don't miss.

I KNOW you're gonna make another one for yourself.
