Promenade

Thank you for letting me join your KAL. I just received my Promenade kit in colorway #7. The colors are salsa hot- red, orange, fuschia and purple. I'm trying to finish some UFOs before I dare cast on. I made several ruffle scarves last year and had 1200 stitches on the needles for the last few rows. The number of stitches for Promenade do not seem that daunting to me!!!

I have the same colourway sitting in my cupboard. I'm looking forward to starting it but have promised myself I must use up some of my stash first. Sigh... Still, it will be great seeign how yours is going. I'm sure it will be absolutely stunning. Good luck

It's so much fun to know someone else has the same colorway. Have you done any other Hannes???? I'm an avid knitter but never tried her kits before. I always felt the wool was a bit scratchy. I put on my big girl pants and said it's high time to try one.

I did Mermaid in the cyclamen pink, brick red and thunder blue colourway (it's on the KAL - I think I called it "the hot pink one" - finished it earlier in the year). I just love it and it always gets admiring comments. I think HF kits are addictive so beware! She sort of gets under your skin. It's the attention to detail like the amazing edging that is on Mermaid. It is simple and yet make the garment look so professional.

I haven't started Promenade yet and I am already looking at other kits at Cucumberpatch.
I'm planning a trip to London with my sister in March. Any great knitting shops you can recommend???

I do most of my buying online. Kangaroo have open mornings and are really friendly & professional but they are in the country south of London. I would google woolshops & London and see what comes up. Sorry I can't be more help. Enjoy your trip!
