I decided that the projects that I have on the needles
aren’t really all that exciting… , fun, creative, are great, but just not for me at the moment…
I’ve been buying patterns instead of plodding along, and have found that I want to re-assign part of my stash from the project that I originally bought it for..
So I had a bit of a stash dive and found that my Rowan Calmer (from the first AY Cake Day that I attended) was looking very forlorn and unused.. I checked the gauge and found that if I go up .5mm in the needle size, that I get the right tension.
So, I swatched on 4.5mm and 5mm and opted for the 5mm Denises.
Now you’re all saying:
“That’s great Kai, but you haven’t told us what pattern you’ve picked and swatched for..”
Well, actually, I have. Take a look at the title. 😀
Yep, it’s the ZephyrStyle Wicked pattern.
And here is my progress so far, as of last night:

A quick note on the Rowan Calmer… This is a fabulous yarn. It’s soft and quite stretchy. I love working with it at the moment. 🙂
So far, this is the best yarn that I have worked with in terms of yumminess and softness. I’ve heard that it pills with wear and wash, so I’ll report back on that if it happens. But I will definitely be working with this very yummy yarn again in the future… (especially as I should have 15 balls left in two other colours!!!)
