Yep you read correctly, I said the acrylic word. Acrylic. Acrylic. ACRYLIC.
I’ve embraced Stylecraft as they produce the best non-squeaky yarn. I hate a squeak, don’t you?
I’ve loved my Kate Davies Owl sweater, so much I went on to make a cardi from the same pattern. But both in wool, and to be completely honest, both leave me with sore arms from the scratchy-ness (M.E. has left me with very sensitive skin).
So I dusted off my trusty pattern (actually, I simply accessed my Ravelry library and downloaded it but that doesn’t flow as well in a sentence), got my mitts on some Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn and went to it.
It’s such an easy, quick knit, it only took a week, albeit over Christmas in front of lots of telly.
Now I’m off to look at more acrylic, I have a stash that needs a little work…
