I have recently returned to the Miss Potter pattern* as a prelude to self-publishing it in Ravelry.
It's already up there as part of an early Yarn Forward magazine. By coincidence I was also asked by a beloved family member to make a pair for her birthday. You want knitting? Then by golly you shall have knitting!
This pair are made from just over 1 ball of Artesano Alpaca DK and are won-der-fully soft.PS: She just phoned to say that she loves them and can she have a scarf for Christmas. Oh joy!
* A friend of mine is test knitting the pattern before I send it out there. The memoryof the error in the published version are still painful to me!
