Green’s not that difficult, actually

Just wanted to share some pics of the lovely birthday girl Libby in the beret I knit her!


The pattern is Urchin by Ysolda Teague and I made it in that amazing green handspun I shared with you a little while ago.

Libby’s favourite colour is green. When I was showing her my stash a few months ago she picked up that skein, snuggled into it and told me she loved it—so it’s been earmarked for her since then. I love it when people tell me exactly what they like, it makes gift-giving so much easier!

It’s Libby’s birthday today, but as I’m out of the country (more on that soon) I gave Urchin to her on Thursday, when I saw her last. We were sitting on the couch having coffee at our favourite cafe, A Bite to Eat. A good way for both of us to start our Thursdays, I think.


Happy Birthday, gorgeous girl!
