Notes

Delicious yarn! The Uncommon Thread has become a firm favourite of mine! It blooms delightfully when washed and blocked. It’s a wonderful combination of violets and mauve which, of course, are very hard to capture on camera. The mother-of-pearl buttons were purchased at La Droguerie in Paris and have tiny violets engraved on them! I love violets and always feel a little nostalgic when wild violet season is finished here in France.

This is my first Georgie Hallam pattern. I was slightly taken aback when I saw sixteen pages printing off but I hasten to add that it is a perfectly wonderful pattern to follow; a delight to read with its colour-coded size instructions. Granny’s Favourite - we are talking Little Red Riding Hood’s Grand-mother of course - can be knitted with short, middle-sized, or long sleeves which makes it sound a little like Goldilocks And The Three Bears! It’s a very easy knit which I followed to the letter. I originally knitted the sleeves long with the lacework cuffs but then frogged them to make middle-sized with 6 rows of garter stitch.
