This pattern is from ClassicCafe- book one - from the RYC collection and the pattern I'm knitting is called Whitney. I bought this over a year and a half ago and only just got around to it.
The yarn is RYC Cashsoft DK and it's so beautiful and soft, a wonderful yarn to knit with, the only thing I don't like about it is that the wool pills quiet a bit. I'm hoping that it will subside with wear. It is a blend of 57% fine merino 33% microfibre and 10% cashmere.
The colour is poppy which appears a bit brighter on the screen then what it really is. It is a real shame that you cannot buy the RYC range in Australia. For some strange reason when it was released by Rowan they decided not to distribute this range to Australia. I know that with the internet we can get anything we want with a click of the fingers (or in this case the keyboard), but if you don't want to spend huge amounts on postage then it's not so much of a convenience and not very healthy for your credit card either, especially if you tend to be a bit of a yarn addict like myself. Blogger is playing up on me, so if the heading doesn't look right I am sorry everyone, I've tried to fix it several times and can not do it.
Must go and have some dinner and do some serious ironing, I know, you ask "who irons these days" I do ( yep I probably need my head read). I use to have an ironing lady but since business is not doing so well I had to give her up.
