Notes

Love this pattern, love this yarn. A bit pricky, especially for Superwash, but not bad, and gorgeous colours.

Knit primarily in Scot’s Bay on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, thus the name. Nova Scotia yarn, bought in Merrickville Ontario, taken on holiday back to Nova Scotia, and brought back to finish at home.

I wish I had done it right and alternated skeins as there’s some noticeable pooling. Also, she grew while I was making it (Eff that sea air) so argh. But as the recipient says “Whatevs”. I’ve got almost a full skein left over if I need to lengthen the sleeves before she outgrows it.

Now on to an Eased for me…
