Notes

26/6/16 Started today, need to do something to take my mind off recent events. I’m a bit apprehensive about this wip but fingers crossed and here we go :)
27/6/16 AGAIN, why have I put off trying this style for so long? - it’s just common sense!! up to the third repeat and wondering now why I’d almost convinced myself I wouldn’t be able to do it before even trying!!The artesano is knitting up lovely and all is going well so far. I’ve dropped the needle size down to 4.5mm instead of suggested 5mm.
Used all 50g of artesano, decided to change to a different colour to add interest and have used a pale pink Rose Alpaca from Ice Yarns to finish the last 2-3 sets. They look lovely together:)
{The colours are not accurate in these photos, the artesano is more of a plummy red and the rose alpaca is a very soft beigey pink.}
Lovely pattern and its so much easier than it looks, many thanks to Susannah the designer
