FO: BETTNA FOR BABS
"Babs" is my pet name for Lauralee!

PATTERN: Bettna
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! 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!

That's so pretty! It looks big and warm and cozy! She looks great in everything you make her, too.

ArtLady, I saw this over in the 'How-To" folder with that blocking question. It is just gorgeous!! 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.
