I've probably mentioned before how much of a big fan of gimmicks and novelty items I am. Really big one. And in knitting this makes me fall in love with ribbon yarns.
Last weekend my Dad bought me a green velvet jacket as an (early) Christmas present. So I trecked to the craft shop to find some matching wool so I could have a hat. Rowan's Cotton Tape was on sale. I had the pattern book due to an earlier, ill-fated attempt to knit one of the tops in it. So I grabbed two balls in the right colour.
The hat will (hopefully) be blogged about tomorrow
The ill-fated top was supposed to be red. I only got around to unravelling it all last week. These balls are the only evidence of its existence.

Yarn: Sirdar Organza in red/purple
Ya What: 10sts*13rows, 50m, 50g, 80% polyamide 20% cotton, Lot 94
Why: To see how it knit and because flowers are fun.
Opinion: Nice, quick, good yarn.
