Boleros are such nice little garments. Making them is a lot of fun because one can let one's fantasy run wild. And they are so useful, a wee shrug that is not quite a cardigan but a bit more substantial than a wrap because it needs no fiddling and wrapping and throwing across your shoulder, which in my case invariably ends in a disaster because the wrap will start slipping the moment I move, and nevermind those pins and toggles and buttons! A bolero truly is a quick knit and a very good chance to use up those orphan yarns, a stash buster par excellence. This bolero (based on a pattern by Tiny Owl Knits) is called Swiss Miss - and Susanne knows why...
Bolero - a word with very many meanings.
me it always brings to my mind the incredible performance of the
Stuttgart Ballet, Marcia Haydee and Richard Cragun dancing in Maurice Béjart's choreography Bolero Part 1 and 2 - it is well worth watching it, listening to the Bolero music written by Maurice Ravel - simply fascinating right to the riveting end!
