Store Samples

We knitted this Jo Sharp pattern (Knit Magazine issue 2)in Jo Sharp Desert Garden Aran Cotton. We made size medium (should fit a 39" to 40" bust) with 8 balls. it was really easy, very comfortable & soft, but unfortunately we didn't check the gauge first and it turned out huge - our bad, ALWAYS check your gauge! Still, i really like it. i'm thinking i might have to make a dress/tunic/beach cover-up on the next go.

We just finished this Handmaiden origami sweater. Cool construction. I'm inclined to switch off the yarn, it isn't really anything special. that way it can be up-sized too. annnnnnnd .... as i look for the link i notice that it is no longer featured on the Handmaiden website. I guess they aren't doing it anymore?! :-( well, if you want to do it i'll hook ya up.
