“Romantic blouse” – not so romantic on me.

Well, I’m still going with MMM, which is a miracle. Today I managed to magic up three items – the red Filatura di Crosa “blouse”  from Superior yarn, which is so warm, with black Elle pants from StyleArc and a pair of red cashmere/wool socks.

I knitted the Superior Romantic Blouse from the Filatura di Crosa Fall-Winter 2008/2009 book around three years ago.

I can’t find the same book online, but have managed to find a photo of the blouse

…doesn’t quite look like this on me. You will immediately notice that it is longer than mine. There was an error in the pattern and I didn’t pick it up until it was too late. The garment was far too short. Instead of pulling it out and starting again, I replicated the sleeve and neck trim and stitched it round the bottom. Mine is still shorter than the pattern, but it’s not too bad.

The great thing about MMM is that I didn’t wear this jumper at all last year, but I can imagine that I will wear it at least twice during May and perhaps a few times during winter. Just to give an idea about how gorgeous this yarn is, I weighed the jumper – 50grams. I think that’s pretty amazing.

Today the sponge  for my knitting machine arrived, so I am now going to spend a pleasant evening gluing it on to the bar.
