I have been missing in action recently so this post was started on 23rd March and it is now 21st April. That is almost a month away from doing blog posts. The post I was going to do was about a cardigan I was knitting for my granddaughter. I mentioned this cardigan in a previous post.I have managed to get a bit more knitting done while the Cricket Test has been on in India. (The Test finished quite some time ago. )
I have completed the body of the cardigan and I am now onto the sleeves.(That has also progressed. )
Since starting this post the cardigan is now completed and my granddaughter has been wearing it. Onto the next project.
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.
The jumper is one with a fairly complex pattern but once the rhythm of the pattern is established it is easy from there.
I chose a coloured cotton rather than white, figuring it wouldn’t mark quite so easily.
I didn’t quite get it finished while we were away but only had the sewing up and welts to do when we got home. I am delighted with the result.
