Hi-de-hi, Tupney calling!
Just a flying visit to show off another fairly recent knit. (I say 'fairly recent' but it was started and finished last year!) Nothing terribly exciting this time, just a cable pullover.
The wool was one of mothers charity shop finds and is a lovely soft, springy yarn with a bit of wool in it. (it was called 'Click' but I can't remember the make!)
Finding the right pattern, once again, proved at little difficult- I knew exactly what I wanted to knit but couldn't find 'the' pattern (even in my rather large collection!). Who knew that a sleeveless pullover in a dk yarn would be so elusive. In the end, the only one I could find was for a boys slipover. Any roads, it was just the ticket and even had instructions for a sleeveless version- BINGO or rather LOTTO!
"Every schoolboy athlete must have a thick sports sweater for running and games. The one pictured here is knitted in a wide cable stitch alternated with a narrow rib, and the neckband, the cuffs and the welts at the bottom are knitted in a firm close ribbing"
Unfortunately I don't look as cool in my pictures! I also posed by a shed in the hope that it would make the wearing of slacks acceptable...I know, how shocking! Tupps in slacks!!!
Blimey, it was frizzywig when I took these photo's back in November- I even found it hard to smile because it was so cold!
I have quite a few projects on the go at the moment and will be back shortly with more updates...
Till the next time,
