FO Friday - Song of the Sea

I seem to have got the knitting bug back again recently - most likely due to my trip to Woolfest a few weeks ago. It never fails to inspire. And of course, the pretty purchases always help!



Today's FO was made using a Woolfest yarn purchase - Fyberspates Rural Charm BFO. The pattern - Song of the Sea by Louise Zass-Bangham - was from the same stand. In fact, I had to buy both these items after seeing the stall holder wearing her stunning finished version.



I got right to it after completing the body of my never-ending Audrey cardigan, and to give myself a break from the tedious, non-stop garter stitch. It took me only five days, that's how much I loved knitting it. I just couldn't put it down, every round led to another, then another, and before I knew it I'd finished and it was blocking in my airing cupboard.





Thanks to the stupidly cold British summer this month, I've actually had quite a bit of wear out of it so far. This is me wearing it today.







I have already ordered another skein of the same yarn in a dusky pink mix so I can knit another right away for my best friend's birthday in a few weeks. She loves the sea, and she loves pink, so hopefully this will go down a treat :)

Love it. You are right the pattern is absolutely perfect for that yarn. I love patterns that you keep saying to yourself, just one more row, just one more row.

That is beautiful, sometimes a pattern just call out to be made and we shouldn't even try to resist. I am sure your friends will be thrilled.
