Revontuli And Lydia

I'm a few days late with this one, what with the Woolfest n'all. This is the back view of Lydia Crescent. I didn't block as many points as pictures in the pattern showed. I think it looks ok, if it needs blocking again, I shall consider doing more. I saw signs for blocking sets at Woolfest and was very tempted. The best price was £25, and that would have totally blown my budget :-( I wore Lydia on Friday and she sat very comfortably. A Victory!

May I introduce Revontuli? I think the colours are reminiscent of the Aurora Borealis. The yarn iis Hand Dyed worsted spun kid mohair from the rasibeck flock of Angora Goats. It is by Jan Hicks of The Wool Clip in Caldbeck. The Wool Clip are the organisers of the Woolfest. It is a bit difficult to see the pattern of Revontuli at the moment
