Aran KnittingÂ by Alice Starmore has been re-issued. I got a little carried away last night (it was very late!) on my iPad andÂ pre-ordered it from Amazon. Despatch date is 27th September so a little waiting time! I am however a little confused because The Book DepositoryÂ says they can despatch it today but it is not published until 26th November so the question is will I have my book for Christmas? On the plus side I could then give it to someone to give to me for Christmas!
There is a design in the book I have fallen in love with Eala BhanÂ (click for a picture of the back).
It is aÂ “have to knit it” on the “to knit” list. It calls for Alice Starmore’s own 2-ply Hebridean yarn, which you can buy from her website, Virtual Yarns. They are switched on and allow you to buy a yarn pack for the design in any of the colorways of the 2-ply Hebridean. Prices don’t look too bad but they don’t give youÂ much of a feel for sizing – would I be a medium or aÂ small???
I have read that the 2-ply HebrideanÂ is very soft and lovely and the colour I have my eye on is Wild OrchidÂ but there are some lovely colours!
I had better get on with breeze. The right front is growing and hopefully some more photo’s over the next few days.
Meanwhile my current sock nearly has a heel!
