Remember this?


A finished Azure Allure 😀

I FINALLY finished it 😀 This has been hanging around for SIX MONTHS. How silly is that?! It only needed to have the sleeves sewn in and the neckband knitted. I’m quite happy with this – I love the colour and the pattern, but it’s a bit short (I hate having that gap between my jeans and tshirt!) so I might try and add a few more rows to the bottom, although I think it might spoil the look of the border… It also doesn’t drape like it should, because I used a merino aran as opposed to the cotton yarn that was suggested. And it’s not very flattering.

I’m not really sure if I’ll ever wear this, which is a shame because I spent so long on it and learnt so much from knitting it. Which is a sad thought. And it’s sentimental as well, because I started it when I was on holiday with Mr Y. Well, we’ll see. Maybe after a wash and block it’ll feel different.

    It’s a great colour and pattern, it’ll probably loosen up a bit once it’s blocked 🙂 I know what you mean about having a gap round your middle though, it always drives me batty.

    Oh no, do wear it, it’s too adorable to be left to languish. Perhaps you could make it button up all the way?

    oh, it’s beautiful! i think the length is great, it’d be fine over a longer tee or tunic.

    Hi, where is the pattern from? I googled it, but didn’t come up with anything except a mermaid from Simply Knitting!
    It looks really cute, you should wear it! I know what you mean about the gap bit though, I feel so uncomfortable, but I’m fairly chunky!
