Introducing Kiri!
Filed under: Knitting

Yes she’s finished and I love her! Imgp0383

I wore her on the beach, I wore her in the car, I wore her to work and I am wearing her now!

The yarn is so soft, Patons Coral DK, elegant drape in color Sky. It is 61% cotton and 39% acrylic and washable at 30 degrees C so I can chuck it in the wash whenever I want.

Here’s another view of it on the garden fence

Imgp0384 You may just be able to see that I have added some little glass beads to the edge just for fun.

The pattern for those of you who have not met it before is a free one available from this clever lady. It is a "rewrite" of the Birch shawl in Rowan 34 written to knit up rather than down so you don’t have to worry about running out of yarn. It was originally done in Rowan Kid Silk Haze but I fancied some thing a little less fuzzy so I bought this yarn on sale at £1.20 a ball and it took just over 4 balls in all, so a bargain!

French Market bag is finished and is housing my take along knitting, a pair of toe up socks- photos to follow.

    Beautiful! Love those beads too. What a great idea to use the Patons Coral yarn. It’s one of those yarns I keep being drawn too but haven’t yet bought. Yet. ;-)

    I love your Kiri! I’m amazed at how it looks so different in a non-fluffy yarn. I’m a non-fluffy kinda gal myself, so I like your version much, much better. And the glass beads are great!
