Or perhaps the header should read “on and off the needles” as I’ve finished two items!! Yippee!!
First up the socks for my chiro which were very well receivedand my “Gretel” cardi (which is also available through Ravelry)So pleased with this finish; love the shoulder finishand the stitching on the hem and the cuffsI did find the sleeves were too long, but as the sleeves are knitted in the round from the dropped shoulder, it was easy to undo and stitch to my sizeI’ll try to get someone to take a pic of me wearing it as it’s such a comfortable fit and so very warm.
So delighted with it, that I chose this gorgeous “Aquarium” colour for another (and yes, the sleeve instructions have been written down!)In the meantime I’ve started this pattern in 12 ply which I’m thinking will knit up fairly quicklyand Mum’s cardi is going well; the back is finished and one front started, including pocket which I’ve not done before, so I’ve learnt something new – always a good thing!Winter is slowly coming to an end so I’m not sure how much more knitting will be done. In the meantime I have a variety to choose from…..as you do!
Anything on your needles?
PS This finish was posted on Instagram a while ago; some fingerless gloves for a friend. I thought I’d taken a pic on the camera but had only taken it directly for Instagram and for some reason it hasn’t come up well when I’ve copied it across. Grrr. You get the drift anyway. And another finish!!
