Finally decided.......



........what my next project from VTL will be. Didn't really fancy knitting the Syrian Shawl as I thought it looked a bit boring but I've got this gorgeous 4ply cashmere/silk yarn from Posh Yarn which I couldn't decide what to knit with so I tried it in this pattern and I lvoe it. Completely different look than in the book where it's knitted in KidSilk Haze on 4.5mm needles. I'm using a 4ply yarn on 4mm needles. But I think it shows off the colours well. My youngest daughter loves it and wants it. But its luxury cashmere/silk and she is only 8. So not sure if I'll risk giving it to her. We'll see.

Those are nice colours. And the pattern isn't so complex as to obscure or be obscured by them. Good choice of yarn, I'd say.

Love the way the yarn is striping! Such warm, sunny colors.
