Speaking of which does anyone else wind their skeins using their feet, obviously my feet are normally further apart to hold the yarn tight, I couldn't get far enough away to fit them into the photograph without moving them closer.

This is Trillium by Erika Knight from the new Rowan Magazine, number 45. I'd been thinking for a while I needed to start a bigger project and something for myself. I liked this pattern as soon as I saw it, quite Katherine Hepburn I thought and great to wear in summer with wide legged trousers though not necessarily whilst dragging The African Queen through the swamp. Mr FF might like that, its his favourite film ever. The instructions call for Rowan Fine Milk Cotton, but I had a bag of unidentified yarn in the stash that looks like mercerised cotton but could just as well be something man made. Its knitting up nicely but for some reason I wish I was knitting socks.
