Oldie but Goodie!

Before I talk about being re-united with this sweater I want to thank you all so much for your birthday wishes and wonderful words of encouragement re the pattern collection. It helps a LOT to know I have folks eager to see the fruits of my labour!

So, the OBG! I haven't had this sweater for almost 3 years but it made it's way back to me last week. It is of course my Slipped Hours design that I made for the Sanguine Gryphon using her Dance yarn.

I was really satisfied with this design (an early one in my short career as a designer) and am very happy to have it as a new addition to my wardrobe (this sample fits me so well too)! I love the pleasing, simple shapes of the slipped stitch pattern, the 3/4 length sleeves and the floppy cowl.....

Unfortunately the yarn used for this is to be discontinued but I have plans to re-knit it using a different Sanguine Gryphon yarn and then re release the pattern here on my blog.

Now to choose a yarn and colour from all the wonderful ones on offer over at the Sanguine Gryphon!

Hi Gundrun and happy birthday! I was one of the knitters at your workshop in Saxtons Rivers a couple of weeks ago. I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed it. I finished the sample shawl and am working on the edging of the large version. Also I came over here and bought three patterns and started one of the shawlettes. Looking forward to your book!

You do sound 'stoked' (as they say over here) about getting this sweater back - the colour suits you and it looks really comfy to wear too. Bx
