Ogee was greatly admired but, by the end of the hot and humid evening I swore I'd never wear it with a camisole again!
Here it is, hanging in the hotel closet.

This pair of winter hiking socks was born en-route. It's the first of 3 pairs I intend to knit from my stash of Cleckheaton DK Superwash remnants. There's at least 4 balls of each colour, just perfect for socks to keep JS warm on his Aussie Bush Walk trip this winter.
Finally, the Bolero....with its temperory but now permanent brooch made of an old Versace punk pin and a heart charm. Again, the yarn came from my ever growing stash, remnants from a Jumper knitted last year.
Pattern : Boleros from Pildar No 443-T5-450
Yarn : Lion Brand Wool-Ease, worsted weight, 80% acrylic 20% wool
Amount : 2.2 x 85 gms x 197 yds
Needles : 5.5 mm
The pattern called for the neck and front bands to be knitted separately, I picked up the stitches and got away with just seaming the sides and sleeves that I forgot to knit in the round!!
