Phew! She's done! I loved this knit. Nowhere near as difficult as it looks, I look at it and am amazed that it's worked with only 4 colours.
What: "Amphora" tunic, by Jade Starmore from her book "A Collector's Item", size Small.
I Used: 2-ply Hebridean 100% wool, purchased from Virtual Yarns.
Using: 3.25mm and 3mm needles
PITA factor: None. If you're a fan of stranded knitting (and this is NOT a Fair Isle), you'll love this one. The repeats are very easy to remember, as are the colour sequences.
Once I've sewn down the facings, I will post a modelled shot.
Hee hee! So happy!
And now... on to something else! No, not Cicely of York just yet... Another one, which I'll post a picture of next time around.
How Things Go Around Here
So, every evening, the Little Dudes get their dinner in their own bowls. And they line up the same way every time - Gandalf, Mae and then Atticus. I have to place their bowls in exactly that position, or they won't eat out of them. They'll just stand there, and stare at me until I place it in the usual order.
However. Within, oh, 5 seconds of me placing the bowls down in the order above, this happens.
And, if I were to place the bowls in the order they end up in, they wouldn't touch them.
The bowls must be served to them - Gandalf, Mae, Atticus - in that order. They'll nibble for a second or two, then comes the switcheroo above.
Atticus. Gandalf. Mae.
They are so funny!
