I am knitting a cardigan for myself, in fair isle. A work of patience, all those small stiches in a row.
Therefore, I need some distraction. A small project, quick to finish.
And when something like this comes along on facebook, it was love at first sight.
I bought the pattern, and the babywool from Bergère de France and set out to knit intarsia.
Who remembers the little plastic fish - dangling on your needle ? I has been ages since I used them. Probably from since the boys were little and I knitted them sweaters with footballs on, or Zorro.
Well, this is the result. I love the combination of light blue / red. It reminds me of something my mother knit for my doll, Mireille. Those were exact the same colours. I am speaking of the 1960ies....
Now for a little girl who can wear this. The pattern included little mitts too.... aren't they cute ?
