This special handspun yarn has been waiting for the perfect project for quite a long time. It is a a 3ply yarn made up of 3 singles each single coming from a seperate 100g braid of The Yarn Wench Falkland: 464m / 310g - 16wpi
I got it in a swap with a friend on Ravelry back in 2009. I thought it might make the yoke of a cardigan for me, but when I saw Knittingtastic's Pop! Cardigan I knew it would be perfect.
The patttern is from Knit Now magazine (issue 11) - (this magazine also has an amazing pair of socks also designed by Rachel) and was designed to be a quick weekend project with 100g of DK yarn.
It took me 3 evenings to make the smallest size - and then another week to choose buttons!
I wasn't sure how the yarn would knit up, but now I am left hoping that my bump is a girl... as don't think I can part with it!
