Miss May off the needles!

Miss May was one of those knits that I fell in love with the pattern a while ago, and was hoarding it waiting for the right wool to come along. Thankfully that perfect wool finally came along when I saw tanis fiber arts new colour way, papaya! It was a marriage made in heaven

Miss May was all charted, which I love. Super simple to follow…I actually finished the last chart during the day, with kids awake and running in and out of the house!

The pattern calls for a full 400m of fingering wool, so I knit right to pattern without any mods. Looking back, I wish I had knit a repeat (or two!) of the second chart because I had lots of wool left over and the shawllette isn’t as deep as I had hoped

I admit to second thoughts about wearing the colour. I tend to stick closely to the blues, purples and greens. Being a redhead I avoid pinks, reds and orange like the plague, but the heart wants what the heart wants!

It’s the perfect summer knit, and I can’t wait to wear it!
