Gretel


Gretel is done and I love it. Pretty, pink and poofy, just how it is meant to be.


Miss B is still in her 'refuse to model hats' mode so I will have to wait till this is gifted to get a better pic.
Yarn: Cleckheaton Angora Supreme (Discontinued) 1.5 balls.
Needles: 3.75mm and 4.5mm
I followed the pattern as written, apart from the few times I became distracted or interrupted which required fixing.
This yarn also sheds fluff which somehow ends up in your mouth when knitting. I don't remember the purple I used to make Wicked doing this, maybe it's just the pink
It is very warm and really shouldn't be knit on a 33 degree (celcius) day.

It's sooo pretty. And yes I made the mistake of knitting in bed with mohair .Gives waking up with a furry tongue a whole new meaning doesn't it! LOL
