“As long as the ties that bind us together are stronger than those that would tear us apart, all will be well.”

Ties that bind us, with love or yarn.

The pattern is ready and available here:-)

(yes I am a little excited about this one.)

Waterlilly green it will be:-)

I am having this test knit in 3 different versions. One, DK yarn held double, one DK held single and one Navajo Plied. (DK yarn tripled the easy way:-)

Pattern coming soon!

Notes from version 2:-)

It’s almost as pretty on the back side as the front. Cool pattern:-)

Aug 24th

Swatched again using the Capri colour way of the same yarn (10/28) as before. Kinda just experimenting with the super wash aspect of it as well as test knitting my chart.

41 stitches and 34 rows plus cord Bo and co.
9 by 5, before washing. 9 1/2 x 5 1/2 after a hand wash… off to the washing machine! (It washed really well:-)

September 21st.

I received my Kone of Waterlilly and have finally cast on.

1/3 done and used 150 grams.
1/2 done = 233 grams. x2 = 466 total needed.

2/3’s done and have used 351 grams. 3 repeats to go plus the edging.


499 grams!

Details in a day or 2… DH is home for 4 days… so time allowing:-)
