..I then left it for a few months..I had loads of time to get it finished and I had other things I *needed* to do before then.
Last weekend we went to Portsmouth for the christening. I had the back and one side knitted but with a bit of late night knitting, I got it finished just in time...1030 on the morning of the christening...no time for blocking, just a quick smooth out on the table in the fab retro Forces family accommodation we stayed in, in Gosport, before getting ready and taking it to the church for my sister to put on my beautiful little niece.
The pattern was fab and I am definitely going to make another one. It is a really clever construction and looks neat and delicate when finished. There were a couple of times that I had to read the pattern more than once to understand what it was asking me to do but I think that was more down to the translation of the pattern..and my understanding, than the pattern itself.
Because of the *ahem* slightly last minute nature of the cardigan, I didn't get organised to take a proper photo of the cardigan on S but I love this photo of her eating the head of an icing teddy!
Have a great weekend everyone!
