Interrupting the trip reports to show you the only finished piece I've knitted all summer.

It's Daisy, a pattern by Kim Hargreaves and featured on her recent book Breeze. I particularly love the pocket details and the horizontal rib effect. The yarn was also quite nice to knit with (I don't enjoy knitting with cotton that much) and I added a trim on the inside of the button band to give it more stability.

Pattern: Daisy, by Kim Hargreaves
Size: XS
Needles: 3.25 mm
Yarn: Rosários 4 For Nature, color 25 (5 skeins)

And I even managed some outside photos this time ...

I'll try to post about the rest of our Baltics trip soon, but we're leaving tomorrow for a week of hiking in the Pyrenees so unless we find wi-fi access up there I'll get back to it at the end of next week. And now I better get some sleep because we have a 12 hour drive starting *very*early* tomorrow morning ...

That looks lovely on you! The trim on the button band is such a nice touch.

I've enjoyed your photos from your trip, especially the hot chocolate brought back memories from a week spent in Poland, where I had the most amazing thick hot chocolate. I haven't been able to find hot chocolate like that in the US yet.
