I have managed to get a bit mo……..

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.

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