Quick knit picks

Try saying that one quickly.

Little Boozle 2011

It's all about gratification.

Two great patterns that knit up quickly,
especially the Versa in 12 ply!

Pattern: Acacia singlet by Georgie Hallam
Yarn: BWM Cotton (8 ply) in cerise

Little Boozle 2011

I love knitting cotton,
as long as you can find some nice bright colours
and as long as the garment isn't too heavy.

Pattern: Versa tunic by Shannon Passmore
Yarn: BWM Rustic (12 ply) in wineberry

In a size 4 (tunic version), this used just under one ball of wool.

Such a quick project.
Perfect for winter layering!

They look great - I love the colours - I am a little disappointed with the cottons that BWM have this seaso - I really loved the carissa colour that they have discontinued.
