Twinkle Twinkle ... Rock & Purl is a little Star :D

 
A few months ago, the ever so slightly *AWESOME* Rock&Purl contacted me for some yarn support, so of course, I jumped at the opportunity, as she designs such pretty things, especially with my yarn *GRiNS*
She requested Perfection Lace... 800m of complete luxury... in a tealy/blue colour, and so 'Squeeeel' was born :D


This beautiful design is featured in the current issue of 'Knit Now', and is graded to fit 76 (86, 96, 106, 116, 126, 136) cm bust, so, the smallest size will take only one skein. and the largest will take only 3 ... which I think is rather fabulous, as I can make 3 matching skeins of any colour quite easily :D 

It also makes for an affordable Indie Dyed garment, which is especially desirable with the economy as it is at the moment !! You’d pay a lot more for an ‘off the peg’ pure silk cardigan like this as well.

I have added two custom dye slots to the shop... one for 2 skeins, and another for 3 skeins... so you can make this little piece of awesome in any colour you want... especially dyed for you by me :D

Is there any way to get that pattern/magazine online?

When you say the current Knit Now, do you have a number? (the cover only has a number, not a date). I've bought one today but this pattern isn't in it (bit annoying when they're sealed up).

Or if it's available online I'd prefer to do that?
