Here I am again, shamelessly blogging away to relieve you all of your virtual 50p's! This is Kolsva from Noro Revisited by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton. I am so pleased with it. I bought the yarn in July 2006 when I visited a "cake day" at Angel Yarns and it lay forgotten for months until Pictish knitted hers and I was reminded I had the yarn too.

The pattern - well it's more "guidelines" than pattern as Captain Barbosa would say - was a test of skill and ingenuity in parts, especially the sleeve shapings, but well worth the effort. It's also a very quick knit too.

I though it was time for a modelled photo - even though I had worked a night shift the night before it was taken and had had about four hours sleep. And if you click the photo you can see the lovely earrings I had for Christmas from an equally lovely cyber friend.

Yarn: Noro Kochoran #14
Needles: 6mm Millwards
Size: large to fit 40"

Thanks again for all your comments so far this month, I am very appreciative of you all.
