Cotton denim yarn

I usually take some form of craft with me when we go on holiday as I like to have something to do in the evenings or on wet weather days.  I do a great deal of reading on holiday but I also do knitting, sewing or crochet.  This holiday I took along a pattern and cotton to knit a jumper for one of my granddaughters. The pattern was taken from this book.

I chose a coloured cotton rather than white, figuring it wouldn’t mark quite so easily.

    It’s beautiful. How long did it take to make it?

      I was on holiday for three months but I only knitted some evenings or during the day if the weather was lousy. Difficult to quantify how long it took.

        Thank you. I wanted to know the time span, not the exact number. We usually knit when we can, or feel like to.

  3. TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL! I love the detail of the pattern and your colour choice is perfect!
    Well done you…. Ummmm… Jay x

      Thank you Jay. I was unsure about the colour when I bought the cotton but once it was knitted up I was happy with it.
