I love a project that you can start and finish in a weekend. I cast this on friday night and had it finished on a rainy and overcast monday afternoon of a long weekend. My legs are just aching as the lovely veins in one of my legs get more lovely as this pregnancy goes along. They were playing up with the last pregnancy and this one might just tip them over the edge into ugly vein land. So putting my feet up each night and knitting away is just what was needed.
And this is a bit of a change from my usual knitting and I think I might name this project my ‘hippy milo’ as it’s a bit different from the solid colours I usually knit with. The milo pattern by tiKKi is super easy and one of the most popular patterns on ravelry.
The yarn is from the stash and a bit of an extravagant purchase from Jimmy Beans last year. It’s called Liberty Wool by Classic Elite Yarns and the pattern is called Reflecting Pond (7806).
I’m now itching to cast on another milo in cream now that I’ve finished this one so quickly. Ravelry details are here. And I should point out that this is straight off the needles, not blocked or anything. I just weaved in the ends and grabbed my camera. Just love it.
