Ice cream and rainbows......

This one knit up very quick. I love this pattern. Helena (summer issue of knitty). I'm still knitting from my stash too.


I used Sirdar Snuggly again (seem to have alot of that in my wool room). 3--50g balls. This colourway is Strawberry Cream, and the whole time I was knitting it, all I could think about was Cherry Vanilla Frozen Yogurt. The buttons are from my stash too.

The only modifications I made, was lengthening the sleeves and putting on buttons instead of ties. Excellent pattern and very well written. There are so many possibilities with this pattern.

We're getting more thunderstorms again today, so I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the rainbow we caught up to on Tuesday.

It is so pretty. I love the color, I havent seen that one before. I have been using Sirdar Snuggly too for a few knits for Isabelle since it is so soft and their new colors are lovely too.
