Equ and Evangeline

Australia's leading sock model, Equ, has recently relocated to the international city of love, Canberra. Because I miss her and she is a top model who hasnt experienced a Canberra winter (cold, by Australian standards. That means you can actually wear hand knits.)I thought I'd whip her up a small, but glamorous present.

Equ, meet Evangeline.

I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in what I'd call imperial purple, but is otherwise known as colour 330014. In terms of mods, I did six repeats of the cable to make a mid-forearm length glove rather than the almost elbow length.

Evangeline is a lovely, quick and gratifying knit!

Gotta love the quick and gratifying knits that also look fabulous - love that Cashmerino Aran too. Great choice.

And one of the reasons I will stay in Canberra is for the winters. Love 'em.

Imperial Purple - love it! Think I used this colour for some Log Cabin socks - these are fantastic!

Would it be possible for me to use your picture of evangeline on my blog along with a link to your post and adding your blog to my blog roll, as an example of something I would love to knit when I get good enough?
