The Sequel

You may remember I knitted one of these last year for a friend to wear as she bicycled jauntily around Amsterdam. I love the pattern so much I had to make another one for myself,this time in a cotton.


Pattern: Bainbridge by mintyfresh available here.
Yarn: Filatura Di Crosa Millefili Fine. A taupey-pewter colour.It's a testament to the fineness of this yarn that the Bainbridge was its' third incarnation and all without splitting! Take that as a highly recommended from me.

Mods: This time I left off the ties and after some fudging about with an idea of cunning buttonholes a la sumidity, I heeded the words of wisdom and opted instead to make a button-brooch.
Verdict: If you haven't already made one, what is stopping you?



Thanks everyone who left such lovely encouraging comments on my Clapotis, every one a heartwarmer. I hope I've inspired some to re-engage with that classic also.

It just wouldn't be Monday without a mosaic now would it?

Sadly, both Di's dishcloths and Kirsten's beaker are mystifyingly blank, which is sad. Make sure you clink on the links and have a look!

I like this incarnation! I have not made one yet, thought I downloaded the pattern from Ravelry.....I don't know what stops me. Forgetfulness?

The follow-up is as lovely as the first. Beautiful Bainbridge, missy.

I don't know how you do it.

Every time I come here, grey is all I want to see.

That mosaic is beautiful.
