How Charity Wool became a Baby Cardigan

A while ago I bought some terrific yarn in one of those st Luke's Hospice shops for a nice price. Soft enough, superwash, 20% lambs/ 80% merino. Only the colour, sage, was not to my liking.

After the dyebath it looked like this

Now, a few months later, I've knitted 3 skeins into this pretty cardigan, better known as Helena


Really a pleasure to knit. Now it is packed and tomorrow it will be in the post to this precious baby girl.

dat is jouw magie: van een saaie kleur maak jij een prachtig kunstwerk, en daar brei je dan nog iets zalig moois mee!
