|The wartime pattern....|
I’ve finally got round to taking some snaps of my latest and TOTALLY finished woolly wonder (Only about 8 unfinished projects left!). This is probably the woolly that I have most enjoyed knitting this year… well, so far anyway. I’m not sure why, but for some odd reason I felt at peace with it- Strange eh! Ok, I grant you, there were times when I had my moments (don’t we all), but on the whole I can safely say that it went without a hitch.
I was quite sure on the pattern I use and was equally steadfast about the wool I wanted to use too, so maybe that helped in the fact that I wasn’t constantly doubting myself and my choice of pattern (unfortunately I’m in the habit of doing this). So all in all it was a happy knit and I’m now one happy big knit!
So how did my cardigan turn out?
Well here it is- looking terrible against the backdrop as I couldn't find my less in your face curtains! (eek- pink and orange)
It also doesn't look as neat on me like it is on the mannequin, but that could just be me of course, also it could be the fact that we mere mortals are never, ever going to look anything like those glorious beauties (naturally I'm speaking for myself here as I know such people do still exist)!!!
Knitted from the exceedingly lovely wartime pattern shown at the top of the page^
I also used up this Raspberry coloured wool from my ever expanding stash.

Here’s the demure one …

|and the back!|
and the last!
That's it for now folks. I have another jumper to show, but I need to do a bit of diddling before that one hits this blog!
Back to the sewing machine, I guess.
