FO Friday.......My Aureus.

Happy Friday, my friends. I hope you've all had a great week. I went to the Sewing for Pleasure show at the NEC, yesterday with my friend Lyn. We had a great time with lots of great stands, demo's and workshops. I will share more about it, in a separate post but it's worth going too, if you like sewing or knitting, it finishes on Sunday.

Now back to my Aureus, I finished it on Wednesday evening, I'm so pleased with how it turned out and have been wearing it since.

The pattern is by Michele Wang and is in Pom Pom Quarterly magazine, Issue 7. I knit it in Rowan Felted Tweed DK, I made the size 42 and used 10 balls. It's a nice loose fit, like a boyfriend style and very comfortable to wear.

Check out Tami's blog for more FO's, this week.

Have a great weekend, whatever you're up to, I'll be back soon with my crafty buys and makes from the sewing show.
