Smokey blue Baktus

I love this time of the year as suddenly one week into February the days are getting longer and the sun is up earlier.  On the way to school, I spotted lots of signs of spring with new buds on trees and snowdrops in gardens.

Last week I finished a present for my sister – a Blue/Grey Baktus.  It seeemed to take a very long time to knit.  I used J C Rennie 100% lambswool bought from my current favourite wool shop in Crouch End called Nest.   I finished the ends with some beads, the centre bead is a large laborodite and there are smaller faceted laborodites and grey pearls at the ends.  This wool washes and blocks so beautifully.
