My latest knitting venture

wool chartThis is the wool chart that I sent a photo of to my elder daughter to choose a colour as I had told her I needed a project for knitting.  I had to order the wool from the local wool shop. She wants me to make her an oversized cardigan so I searched through all the old patterns I have and came up with this one.  The booklet is one I bought for 20 cents at a thrift shop.

Aran cardigan

I have started the project and there has been cricket on recently so I will get this done quite quickly.

Aran patternThe pattern is meant to be knitted in Panda but that has acrylic in it and I wanted to knit in pure wool so it meant that I really needed to do a tension square to make sure that I got that right.  I needed to go to a half size bigger needle to get the correct tension.  The cardigan is knitted in 10 ply so it will be a quick project.

    It looks so much better than the picture. The color is just great for this pattern. I am really looking forward to see it finished.

      I thought it would be too bright but I have to admit my daughter has chosen a good colour.
