Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

So after the marathon knit to finish the jacket for T, it is straight on to a birthday jumper for  H who will be 7 next month. This will be the first one I have made him not in the Baby yarn, it is Sirdar Country Style, colour Village Green, and it contains wool, so maybe be itchy. It doesn’t glide as easily over the pins! Pattern, one I have had for many years, so many years it probably counts as vintage. But just plain old stocking stitch, so should be a quick knit, currently half way up the back. 25.2.15 003 This book is set in the New Forest, and spans the time from William the Conqueror to the present day. The author uses real events and fictitious families whose fortunes go up and down over the centuries. I like his writing style, easy to read, strong narrative and believable characters. Perfect for the still long nights. On a happy note I saw my first daffodil on my way home from Scarborough today, in a grass verge. Spring IS COMING! Joining with Ginny for Yarn Along

  1. I used the 4 ply yarn for my raspberry crocheted scarf and gave it away because I found it a little scratchy for me. It’s been worn lots by the recipient though, so might be fine for the little one.

  2. I absolutely love that colour of green! It will be lovely!
