Perdita with Love

There is a few reasons I haven't blogged much this week.

One) My sister got engaged! So much celebration and champagne drinking has taken over from knitting.

Two) Karen (cook-n-knit) sent me a copy of VK so have been salivating over that instead.

Three) Thanks to my SP7 I received some great beads and thread to do Perdita. So I decided to do my first ever pattern deviation and made a variation of Perdita- I call it Perdita with Love. Inspired by the colour and the events of the week.

And close up

If you want the pattern let me know and if enough people do I shall write and post it up- will full credit to Elizabeth for the original of course!!

She's lovely! Both sentiment and color. Congrats on the engagement in the family!

Congratulations to your sister! And I salute your decision to stay away from knitting after champagne. It's generally not a good combination...

I love your perdita variation. It's gorgeous.

GORGEOUS! Such a talented SP ;-)

I'm so glad that the beads go well with the yarn, and that you're getting good use out of both!

Congrats to your sister! I'm glad VK got there so quickly! IK should arrive shortly.

Perdita with Love is awesome. I still have not knit with beads...I'm afraid.
