Today I received a parcel with the wool I need for making Owlet and Kid Owlet by Kate Davies. She designs some beautiful knitting patterns.
The pattern is from Ravelry and I had difficulty deciding what ply wool to use as the pattern used British wool. I hope that the wool I have chosen will match the tension gauge.
Kate has a wonderful blog at Needled She has some great patterns and I will try some others when I finish the OWLS and OWLET.
I enjoy knitting on circular needles. The first circular needle I bought was in Princes Street in Edinburgh and I knitted a Norwegian sweater when I was a teenager. Knitting is so much quicker on a circular needle. Unfortunately, for this pattern I needed 6.5mm needles and I have almost every size but that. I use Knit Pro needles with interchangeable ends. I contacted the owner of the local wool store Stitches “N” Things and she is going to get some in for me. It will be strange to be knitting on such large needles.
