I finished Kate Gagnon’s Springtime Bandit this week. This pattern was a fast knit. The yarn was great for a summer knit – it’s a light rayon (Berroco Softwist). I had used the same yarn for the Swallowtail Shawl, a birthday present for Mom. This was the “left overs” – and I have the same complaints about it: it splits badly while knitting.
I’m looking forward to wearing this through the summer in the evenings when it gets cool. I will definitely make this again. It’s also a great pattern for someone wanting to tackle lace for the first time.
I’m off to Knit in Public Day now … have a good Saturday – I hope it’s sunny where you are!
