Ok, the post title doens't make lots of sense but it may or may not rhyme... lol
About six weeks ago I saw that my friend over at Celtic Caston was doing a knit along for a Berroco pattern called Aidez. Well I hummed and hahhed over it (not hemmed and hawed - we have different vowel sounds to Americans!) and then saw some yarn in my very local yarn shop (The Tea Cozy) that would do nicely and umm, well, I started knitting. After I bought the yarn (cascade Eco+ in purple heather, shade 7811), of course.

If the weather had been a bit more cooperative here recently, I would've gotten it done earlier but the blocking took days as I had to do it one piece at a time on the ironing board and steam block it. It worked out well enough, it just took two days... lol probably as long as it would've if I've wet blocked it. The problem with wet blocking is that it would then have been pinned out on the bed. I can't use the guest bed for blocking as it is a fancy pants air mattress. Oops!
|A bad attempt at an arty shot|
I think you need to see how pretty Nathan's breakfast at Portage Bay was. He'd already eaten most of one piece of coffee de leche French toast by the time I took this shot.
