Daydreaming

This Double V venture has a stitch pattern I love. Both the look of it once it's done and the rhythm of it to knit. Just a four row repeat and within that on the two purl rows you just work the stitch as it is. That only leaves the two knit rows requiring anything like thought and happily not much of that as to me they make sense. By that I mean it seems obvious to my hands and brain what I should do next to get the pattern to work. I don't always find that with lace repeats so it's a pleasure not to have to think too hard about this as it flows along.
That leaves plenty of brain space for sweet daydreams of the finished item which will fit me PERFECTLY. Daydreams of how I shall waft around in the heat of the summer in my new maxi dress, suitably summery cocktail in hand. Ooh how delightful!
Well you know how one good idea leads to another....
Fly fingers fly! So many pretty summery cardis to knit so little time! Here's hoping cardi and the hazy summer days to wear it in style become more than just a dream!

I dream of knitting me a lovely waterfall cardigan, but the reality is I tend to knit for other people first, and I know quite a few people who are expecting babies real soon, and I love knitting baby things.

That sounds like the perfect lace pattern, and it looks lovely too. Your new yarn goes so well with the dress, I can understand you wanting to get going with it.

Knitting is a little bit like dreaming, isn't it? That buttery yellow matches your dress wonderfully.

Very pretty!! and lovely colour choices of both yarns to compliment that gorgeous summer frock!

Rachel said...

I hope your fingers do fly because both of those tops (that will fit perfectly) will look so great with that dress! Very good color choices I must say!

I love the sound of wafting around in a maxi dress with a choice of lovely hand knit cardis to go with it. Now if only we were going into summer here instead of winter, heh!

Hello Sarah!
It's lovely to see your garment adventures, I'm still not quite at that stage yet, I'm waiting until I have a handle on gauge! Do you know, I measured the gauge on my latest sock, and I almost fainted when I discovered it was 7.5 stitches to the inch, JUST LIKE THE PATTERN SAYS!!!!! Oh my, what an achievement... bigger things are on their way!
This cardigan looks lovely, can't wait to see it on! And yes, it will look stunning with the maxi!
XXXXX

I love your choice of pattern and colour for this cardigan; the yarn you have chosen for your next cardigan is also a great choice.

Fly, fingers, fly!
