You might remember that MiloMay was happening last month. I ended up knitting four Milo vests. They were all entered in the competition, which was judged by the young pre-school boy whose clever Mumma wrote the pattern.
Something about one of my entries pleased him – let’s just say he loves trains – and he chose my Stripey Milo as the winner.
Once I got over the surprise, and the (predictable) feelings of unworthiness, I settled into feeling really quite happy. My prize is to be 200g of hand-dyed merino yarn. Whether or not I feel I deserve it, I will certainly enjoy it.
If you’re looking for an easy beginner’s knitting pattern that will stretch you just a bit, Milo is it. I knitted two more in June ; one for each of my daughters.
And I’m still not sick of Milos.
