Sweet, sweet Sorello

Little Boozle 2010

I am a fan of Georgie Hallam's patterns,
as my knitting history and pattern purchase history indicates.
When Tikki organised a mystery knit-a-long recently,
I jumped in and signed up.

Knitting an unknown pattern in stages is an interesting experience.
I started with enthusiasm,
then slowed down,
partly due to other commitments
and partly due to the fact that I didn't know where the pattern was going.

I should appreciate Tikki enough from my experience to know that I will love any of her patterns.
By the time I had finished the cute little derriere feature
and the gorgeous puffed sleeves,
I was enthused again and in love.

I knitted the female version of the KAL, the Sorello
(the other version was the Fratello for boys
and both patterns will be available for sale)

Yarn: Spotlight Basics 8 ply Pure Wool - colourway 09

Another plus- it is a great little pattern to stash bust some of those smaller amounts of wool.
I had red or purple and the little goddess favours red as a 2nd choice after pink.
Apparently purple is socially unacceptable.

She loves it too.

Oh yeah, I love the finished thing. I love it in red too.
I also started off really well but am stuck way back at stage three. And now to top it off I have found out that my kids measure waaaaaaaaaay below their age sizes and there is no way anyone will be wearing a green size 6 sorello. So, I am going to undo it and start again over the summer.
She is such a clever cookie that Georgie.

Tas, it's so totally cute! And I think it suits Miss Mae so well. :)

Oh my - that is so so so cute - love the little feature on the back

Oh totally adorable. I just need to finish the sleeves on mine and hopefully get some modelled shots over the weekend. I love using the 8 ply Spotlight too and they have so many great colors. Red is best though, and it sure looks great with the reindeer ears too.

Oh that is so pretty!
