There are about 8000 knitters out there who have queued up Cirilia Rose’s Aidez on Ravelry and 2500 others who have knitted their Aidez. Isn’t that amazing? Its a global knitting gig 🙂 I am inspired to knit it too. The pattern is so lovely and easy to follow. I am however very finicky with yarn choices. At first i have picked up worsted weight yarn just because i could not find a bulky yarn that grabbed my attention at the yarn store. I swatched, checked gauge, played with yarn and started knitting Aidez on double stranded yarn. Eck…too rug like. The material became too stiff. Back to swatching again after ripping it out. I tried knitting with the worsted weight, single stranded this time. went down 2 sizes with needles and followed a pattern one size up to get XS. Frogged it again. Not liking the drape. Oh no…hope this is not a sign that i would be knitting and frogging the whole entire project. I have finally chosen to knit my Aidez in Cascade Eco + in the most delicious looking purple. Keeping my fingers crossed all will end well. Below is a pix of the pattern posted on Flickr.
I think I can do this! Hmmmm….I know i can 🙂
I should have joined a KAL. Makes me knit quicker. I guess there is no need to rush, right?
