Drum Roll please. No really DRUM ROLL. Here it is finally finished, – the white cable cardigan. It may only be a 24″ chest, but believe me it was not easy.
Who would ever have thought that 12 rows of pattern could be so hard to remember. I certainly couldn’t remember them. I had to watch what I was doing row by row and stitch by stitch. I should feel a sense of achievement but all I feel is relief. I set out to improve my knitting skills last year and learn new stuff. Have a challenge. Mmm. Well Sirdar pattern 1477 was certainly all of that. Have a look at the back.
I completed it last night with the addition of 6 buttons which I think I bought last year from a vintage fair. They are sweet little cats I think.
Or maybe bears. I was not certain if they were too pink. But as I am trying not to spend money on new bits and bobs but to use things I already have, I went with them. Actually I think the bit of colour breaks up the white quite nicely.
And I have made great progress on my fun jumper.
I just have the front bands to do , sew up and add buttons. Should get that done tonight or maybe tomorrow. The book is the Y in my read through the alphabet challenge. Couldn’t find an X author in the library but have requested one from another branch. This book is a load of tosh!
