Finishing things pt 10
A beautiful Kim Hargreaves bolero, made in Rowan's Big Wool. It fits wonderfully.
I didn't like knitting with the Big Wool though. 12 mm needles felt like knitting with timber, and I am used to toothpick sized needles. The fabric is soft and warm, but so thick it makes your breasts look a size or two bigger.
Anyway, I know already this is a jacket I am going to use often. I already plan to make another one, same measurements, but a thinner yarn.
Another Hargreaves project these days is a lace scarf in a merino/silk/alpaca-mix yarn.
