View Full Version : FO: BETTNA FOR BABS

08-12-2009, 12:12 PM
"Babs" is my pet name for Lauralee!

SOURCE: Noro Revisited by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton
YARN: 12.3 sk Noro Kureyon / color 150



It's too early! We haven't had coffee yet!



Blocking really softens up the Kureyon! The pattern calls for Noro Silk Garden, but in all actuality, I like the way Kureyon knits up much better. The stitches are fuller...and more filled in even before blocking! I recommend Unicorn Fiber Wash & Rinse! (http://www.unicornfibre.com/2fibre_wash.htm) My main reason for using Kureyon over Silk Garden was the fiber content. Kureyon is 100% wool. Lauralee can't wear Silk Garden because of the kid mohair in it. And, this is the color (in Kuryeon only) she liked (loved!) the best, lots of greys and greens. She said it's her favorite sweater yet!

ArtLady, I saw this over in the 'How-To" folder with that blocking question. It is just gorgeous!! :muah: I love it. The colors are so nice. It looks beautiful on your daughter. And it looks so snuggly and comfortable. That aqua in there is really a stand out; brings the whole color scheme to life.

Another beautiful Bettna...I just love the pattern. I'm about half way done with mine - just about ready to start the sleeves, but I got side tracked by a pair of socks. Now I want to put the socks aside and finish the sweater! :teehee:
