I can be quite ignorant when it comes to English Literature classics (my excuse being that I was educated abroad), so imagine my surprise when I sat down to knit Miss Dashwood and watch Sense and Sensibility: Dashwoods on the telly and a Dashwood on the needles. Lovely film, and - I must say - a lovely pattern too. I am a convert to picot edging, but not - dare I say it - a convert to knitting with cotton angora: it feels beautiful, the colour is very nice but I found it split easily when doing k2tog. No earflaps and - I note with horror as it may be too small - I made the 3 to 6 months size (I thought I was knitting the 6 to 12 months size!), but I had enough with one ball of yarn.
And, I received this treat in the post courtesy of Maglia. A wonderfully colourful skein of her hand dyed yarn, which would make a very patriotic pair of socks in time for the World Cup (if I were a football fan!). Thanks!
