They are knit in Colinette Jitterbug from Sarah Durrant who is a delightful lady and very quick with her mail order. I loved the Jitterbug experience so much that I indulged in 2 more skeins at the Wool Show in the colourways 'Salty Dog' and 'Elephant's Daydream', both semi-solids - While the yarn is a beautiful base, some of the highly variegated Jitterbug colours can be a bit extreme (Tania renamed her Jitterbug colourway to 'clown barf')! I knit them on 2.25mm knitpicks dpns, which were a perfect match for the yarn. I can't rave enough about this pattern, it's just perfectly wonderful when a pattern just works with no fudging or uncertainty or frogging because of some lack of clarity in directions. The Bendigo Wool and Sheep Show was wonderful as always, but once again I forgot my camera! It was lovley to put some faces to Ravelry names, and to be able to share the excitement of some woolly purchases. I over indulged again, and so begins my YARN DIET.
I WILL NOT BUY ANY MORE YARN UNTIL 2010..
Any purchases will be confiscated by Jacki, and I will be punished by having to watch her knit it.
