You may remember a few posts ago when I alerted you to the seductive nature of testknits.
evil temptress enabler friend Toni did it again by pointing me in the direction of a new design by Canadian designer Natalie Servant.
Like I needed another shawl!
The original is a clever v-shaped shawl, but Natalie was interested in having it done as a rectangular stole as well.
Turns out long skinny knitted thingies may not be the easiest things to photograph
His Royal Beariness thought that this first pic
would be enhanced by the addition of his chewtoy. Purely for purposes of scale you understand.
The one thing to be said in it’s favour is that the deep cherry colour is reasonably true, and it does show off the pattern nicely I guess. Ms Natalie calls this one Clover [ presumably 4 leafed?] but I see hearts.
I tried laying it on the floor … various tables … nothing remotely successful
So next, being the kind, considerate, loving mother that I am, I hauled Nadie and an assortment of woollies outside for an extended photo shoot.
In case you didn’t know, it’s Summer here.
Today got to 38 degreesC [ 100F ]
Once again, greater love hath no daughter …
and for those who care about such things
