Knitting Brook is like inviting an old friend for tea. Hours of peaceful pleasure spiced up with moments of frivolity. I loved this pattern AND the yarn; squishy, fabulous stitch definition and each time you wash it it just gets softer. I have had a skein of Koigu for a while now, bought on a whim one spring, and I knitted it double for the cable rows. The soft yet cheery, Easterish colours remind me of a row of flavoured sugars I spotted in this fabulous tea and coffee shop in the Loire Valley town of Blois. The Uncommon Thread Manuscript calls to mind raw cane sugar of the finest kind.

Angélique adores this pullover! She grinned from ear to ear. I will be making it again, this time, perhaps, a little longer!

Strangely, the one difficulty I had was picking up wrap and turn stitches on the purl side in the round. I’m not sure why?
