Paperdolls - a note about the yarn

I'm kind of sentimental about the yarn I used for Paperdolls. I decided to knit this pattern because I had yarn in stash for it and it seemed like a fine use for this lovely yarn.  For the body I used left overs from the cone of Jamieson and Smiths I bought for my Ursula Cardigan, which I did as a knitalong with Kate.  You know, Kate who moved back to New Zealand two weeks ago, and I'm still sad about it. That Kate.

The blue in the hems was bought by me for for Kate's Ursula, because she though she might run out and I was putting in an order with Jamiesons. When she didn't run out I kept it, because I am so in love with the colour. And the light grey used for the paper dolls themselves? Left overs from Kate's Ursula that she didn't want to ship back to New Zealand. So, the yarn is a bit of a homage to our Ursulas and also to absent friends. Sentimental, I know, but it makes me love this top even more.
