A new Ambah O'Brien pattern

Meet Audra, Ambah's newest pattern.
Immerse yourself in this delicate confection, as sweet and light as fairy floss. Audra is a large bias wrap with simple shaping that begins with an eyelet border then alternates airy garter stripes with exquisite lace, like layers of sorbet and cake. Choose three colours in frosty neutrals or candy-coloured brights, work the layers as long as you like, and make it a luscious, one-of-a-kind piece. Designed to take you from early morning to cool, shimmery evenings, Audra is such an indulgent and satisfying knit, you’ll never take it off.

It's been a busy/lazy day. Beth and I unloaded the van and truck this morning. We're going to have fun Tuesday morning getting the store back in shape. There are boxes everywhere. Then I napped. I got up for a bit and then had another nap. I'm feeling much better and am knitting away. Pictures tomorrow in the sun. Yay. It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day.
