The colours are gorgeous. Yarn is Trendsetter Tonalita , 4 balls, and 5.5mm needles.
And it's nice having a live model too. "Gosh she looks so much like her mother!"
Pattern: "Pike" free from Berrocco
Yarn: Peruvia 100% highland wool from Berrocco, 5 skeins
Needles: 6mm (10 US)
All in all, the pattern knit up pretty fast. No sleeves to deal with. The yarn is lovely to work with and blocked beautifully. You have to pay attention to the way it's sewn together. It's different than normal contruction.
It's not my cup of tea (fashion wise), but hey, I just have to knit it not wear it. So I'm off to deliver it to Julie and pick up Miss "P". Maybe she'll let me get some knitting done this weekend.
