And here's to you, Mrs. Marigold (she's no longer a liberated woman)

I know, I know. What manner of madness is this that has me posting two days in a row? It's nothing short of miraculous.

I prefer not to think of this photo as fuzzy, but rather, as helping to create a mood or affect. It's the FO-photo equivalent of a Monet.


Pattern: Ms. Marigold
Yarn: Well, I "misplaced" the ball band, but it was a 50/50 wool-cotton blend from Anny Blatt. I have a feeling this yarn might not exist anymore? It's very much like the Rowan variety, though. Really spectacular to knit with (my stitches could do no wrong in this yarn). I used 3 of the teal, 1 of the purple (I picked these up for $2 a pop at a monster sale last year. I'm glad I was finally able to use them), and about half a ball of Rowan Calmer (also gotten at said sale) for the ribbing and ruffles since I completely ran out of the Anny Blatt stuff. Which is great because, even though the purples don't quite match, it means I was quite successful in using up stash.
Needles: US 5 (3.75 mm) Addi turbos
Notes: I pretty much knit this puppy as is. I crocheted two fewer rows on the ruffles, because they were flamboyant enough. I also added 2-2.5 inches to the length. Other than that, nada.
