The deadline draws near (as in today) for the Vogue knitting contest. This is why I've been AWOL with Casapinka for a bit. I thought you might enjoy some of my inspiration for the contest, and while I can't show you the finished garment, perhaps - just perhaps - you'll see it in print one day! If not, I promise to show it to you here before the new year. It's the second coat I've knitted in a year - yikes - I could start a collection! As you can imagine, the influence is a bit sixties, perhaps a bit of pink, and if you read the rules of the contest then you know it has to be 25% mohair - and how far mohair has come, as I've found out. It's not quite Mary Quant but I do hope that she'd be proud of it.
Statistically, it's quite unlikely that I will become a finalist but I do believe in trying new things and sometimes we are delighted and surprised, so this is my big effort for 2010. Do you have any last goals for 2010?
