I’ve wanted to knit Aunt Fred by Pamela Wynne since first seeing it at Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool last year. There was something so cosy and unfussy about this knit that I was drawn to. I loved the pattern, a sort of mini houndstooth. It wasn’t until late summer when Maire and I were making our fall plans that I decided to cast on. Around the same time I’d fallen in love the Blue Sky Alpacas Metalico. It’s soft and delicious and has a little lustre. I did hesitate in choosing this because the weight was finer than the pattern required. I paired it up with Blue Sky Alpacas Sport, which is one of my all time favourite yarns. I paired the platinum metalico with a medium charcoal grey. After a few swatches to work out the new gauge and some double checking of calculations, I began.
