Knitting goes quickly when the cricket is on television.

This particular pattern is from a stack of patterns I have accumulated over the years.  I had finished my previous project and was looking for a new one when I found that this cardigan had been marked with a post-it-note.  I assumed that my elder daughter had marked it when she had been looking through the patterns so I took it upon myself to knit it as I had suitable wool in my stash.

I have completed this particular project in record time as I have been watching cricket while I do my knitting, that way I don’t feel guilty about sitting down all day to watch the cricket.

Today Michael Clarke made his 200 runs and Michael Hussey made 100 against the South Africans so it was a good day for the Australians.  It was a good day for me as I finished the cardigan.

      I leave the cooking to Swampy as it is not my forte.
