As an avid babywearer, one of my very favourite woven wraps is Girasol Earthy Rainbow (ER) - it was one of my first wraps, and reminds me of my DD's very early days. I was delighted to come across several pictures of an inexpensive yarn on Ravelry that reminded me of it and knew I had to make something from it. 

I couldn't find any UK stockists, so  after a friend sent me the link, I managed to order it online from Banyan Tree Yarns in Malta - no prizes for my carbon footprint on this one, I'm afraid, but thanks to efficient service it arrived after a few days and just in time for the half-term holiday. 

I chose Gilet court d'ete as the ideal pattern for this quick knit as it's very straight forward and requires little concentration - multiple interruptions per row are not a problem, which turned out a blessing as DS was ill all week.  I made a few tiny modifications (detailed in my Ravelry project notes) and it was done in just a few days. I'm delighted with it and will definitely be using this pattern again.

Even after making a little Simple Spring Shawlette for our Mamamor doll, I have 1.5 balls of this beautiful yarn left. I'm yet to decide what to do with the rest, but watch this space!
