right, i think i can say with certainty now that we've pretty much got winter sorted at strikk. the final in our howater covers for winter 2010 / 2011.
i've used a vinni yarn again (from south africa) which has been hand-dyed and spun by ladies in job creation projects. gorgeously soft when knitted up and very pretty, but my goodness does one have to concentrate (cue audiobooks - cannot watch tv and knit with this yarn, not a chance) - i guess its because its such a soft, smilky yarn that makes it more fiddly. i'm wondering if anyone else has this problem?
so, i'll call this a concentrated knit piece that ends up very warm and pretty.
