Astrid is the Bomb

This could easily become my next obsession, except for the fact that:
A. I've never knit Fair Isle
B. Holiday presents need to get started
C. I owe husband a sweater
But take a look anyway. And if you need to drink from the well, jump over here where the nice people from the Jeanie Townsend Group on Yahoo started a KAL. And to seduce you even more, here's the crack, I mean kit.

Hi Donnac, this is in reply to your comment on my Faux Russian Stole in rowanspun 4ply. I wouldn't describe it as scratchy, especially after a soak in wool wash. I would say it is a bit crunchy and rustic, but not unpleasant at all. Not soft like cashmere of course but pleasant on the neck. Hope that helps! :)

thanks for your comments. The magazine is out of print - it will be difficult to find it, but I finished with it, so if you're keen on knitting this just drop me an email at sbutnarasu at yahoo dot com.

best wishes,

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Some day I'll have to knit another one of those shawls for myself! lol
