Knit in the suggested yarn - Malabrigo lace weight in the colourway, gold on a 4mm circ,
I am not a fan of never ending stocking stitch but the increasing and decreasing to make the ruching gave this a little more interest, though towards the end I just wanted it to end and I started to loose the will to live.
I am pleased with the result the yarn is absolutely gorgeous - so very soft and smooshy. I will wear it as I think it is a pretty little knit.

At the end of July I posted a picture of a close up of some knitting that was secret. Finally, all can be revealed as Emma finally got her birthday present from us. Fates conspired against her getting them on time.
They are Cranford Mitts - pattern by Jane Lithgow. Knitted up in some scarp Reggia and Opal Uni in turquoise. It's a great pattern, helps P-hop too. I made a pair for secret santa partner last year and enjoyed knitting them that I was just looking for an excuse to make a 2nd pair. Another pair is on the cards as I want some now.
