Anais Finished

Here's a cute little cardi that I've just finished.

The pattern is Anais - it's by Kim Hargreaves (as usual) from her latest book called Misty.

I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I opened the pattern book. It's so pretty and feminine.

The pattern calls for Milk Cotton DK, but I used a rather cheap acrylic yarn that I bought in a charity shop! I forgive the yarn for being acrylic (thankfully not too squeaky to knit with) because of the gorgeous colour. It's called heather and it's a lovely blend of pinks, blues and lilacs - it reminds me of fairies (for some reason!). I added heart-shaped buttons to make it extra special.

I pleased with the way the cardi has turned out - the neck seemed a bit wide at first but it's settling down now. The yarn is behaving itself and now that it is knitted up - it doesn't look too cheap.
So now it's on with the next project.


  1. What a nice little cardi you have made. I like it very much.
    Thank you for helping me with names of scrapbookingstores in Liverpool. My son just came from Liverpool, after a wonderful time there.He brought some things for my scrapbooking that can´t be found here. Hope he will go more times. Have a nice weekend !! // Eva
