Knitting



As some of you, who have been watching my blog for some time will remember, this time last year I bought the wool and pattern for this cardigan. Well I never got round to starting it till June, but due to this bout of Arctic weather and recently joining a knitting group, (yes, yes I can hear you saying, "but she said she wasn't going to take anything on till she'd finished the C&G, but this is my reward for a hard day beavering away at samples'), I've finally finished it, and the that's what I wanted the buttons for, that I bought at Hoobycraft.





Anyway here's the result, Oh, and I'm sporting a new hair do, created at the hairdressers, I'm afraid my version is a lot less posh and controlled, still it got me a dinner out ot on Friday courtesy of my OH, he must have been impressed:-)



I knitted the scarf as a challenge from one of the group members as she could't get on with the wool and offered it up to anyone who wanted it, or the cat would have had it. The only thing is she was so impressed that she wants me to knit her one with the other ball she bought.

Gorgeous cardi and model!!!
Don't think we'll be needing it over here for a while though. February is traditionally our hottest month, but we had three days over 40C last week.

Your cardigan looks so much more interesting than just a cardigan, if you know what I mean, and your hair style is lovely too. They both suit you very well. Good luck with all the CG samples - it's all good fun but hard work too at times.

Hi
The cardigan will come in very handy at the moment with all this snow.
The new hair do suits you.
Cheers
