Heidi oh!

G'day all!

I was going to call the post something else but alas ho means something different these days...

(Yarn is almost accurate colour)

Anyway, I think I should share with you my recently completed shop sample,

Heidi by Diane Zangl for SWTC in Terra.

The yarn is a really good yarn. Fairly easy to knit, given its bamboo cotton composition. It is not at all splitty - you have to work really hard to get it to split despite its many small plies. It gets a big thumbs up from me - I'll happily knit with it again.

I don't think I'll knit another one of these though. Not very keen on the design, though it will be great for some people.

Here's an oddity. That's half of the sleeve (the other half is already set in).

And there is many a slip betwixt the cup and the lip. I managed to knit two right shoulders. LOL. Easily fixed but very amusing to see the odd shaping.

It is now two years since we first visited Fort Collins in Colorado for Nathan's interview with HP. So much has happened since then!

anon!
