I haven't quite recovered my knitting habit since last year when it all got put aside during the purging and subsequent move. I used to knit for a couple hours each morning without fail. I am trying to get back into it because I really do love it and I think its a great stress-buster. This is a new pattern from Laura Chau. Its called Pekoe and its part of a four pattern collection called Afternoon Tea Volume 1. All the patterns in this collection look great and I am planning to also knit Samovar and Oolong. But I was really attracted to this pattern for a good summer knit. I am using Euroflax Linen in natural which I had on hand. It is not the yarn called for in the pattern and I know I am going to get quite a different end product due to the drape of linen but I'm optimistic about it. If all goes according to plan I will be wearing it to a friend's wedding in August.
