For sweater or worse…
I will continue the puns!
This is the last of the Christmas knits, well, it isnt technically a Christmas knit, but seeing as the birthday girl is very early January, it falls into the Christmas knits time period.
It was my neices 18th and, as it was a big occasion, and she had dropped a million hints, I decided to break my ‘no knitting large garments as gifts’ rule.
The look of sheer happiness certainly made the effort worth while.
So, what was she wanting? Well, after our WW2 frolics last year, she has been seriously eyeing up my Betty Davis cardigan…
So, here is one of her very own! Same pattern as mine, Quickly-Knitted Jacket by Australian Women’s Weekly, and same modifications, just a more neutral, will go with everything, colour of varying charcoal grey’s.
In other crafting news, I managed to pick up my spinning again and finish a bobbin! Its been a bit of an uphill battle with my health and medication side effects, but I think I’m in the right balance between breathing and dexterity.
And with that, I have a project I have had to put off for nearly a year that I can finally start, so until next week, stay safe!
