I seem to have picked up a fan: Alison of Yarnscape (yes, everyone will be referred to in medieval-Tolkien style from now on. It’s CMelvin of the Sceptred Isle, my Lord). Anyway, having wandered slightly off the point, it’s lovely to make new friends in the craft world (particularly, for me, ones who actually live in the UK). So just for her, here is my proposed yarn etc. for the Rogue-to-come. Cascade 220 in Italian Plum.

Plus, of course, needles, stitch markers, sewing machine, scissors, pattern… Knitting doesn’t half come with a lot of kit!
