One of the star attractions of the Yarn Tasting was Louisa Harding's amazing new yarn Luzia
, and the gorgeous sample garments she showed us made up in it.
Well, you can imagine how impressed we were when one of our talented customers, Karen, came in just five days later with the lovely cardigan in the picture above. It's the Cora cropped cardigan from the Luzia pattern collection
. She'd cast on the very night of the Yarn Tasting, and it was already finished!
Luzia's a tremendously fun yarn. It knits up into a fabric that looks like fur and it comes in the most beautiful jewel tones. And on 7mm or 8mm needles, you can see your work grow before your very eyes! This is the very best kind of instant gratification!
And now we're wondering if you have any other finished objects that grew of the Yarn Tasting. Do tell us in the comments below!
