Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Friday Finish

So long since I finished anything I almost forgot what it feels like. So without further ado here is cardigan with 28 handsewn bobbles.

Pattern and yarn is Sirdar Snuggly

When I saw the pattern I assumed the bobbles were knitted as part of the whole , but No. Knitted separately and sewn on…

Best bit is choosing the buttons.

Cute or what?

For Baby P of course. And best thing about a finish is starting a new project. Hurrah.

I need a hurrah, catastrophic dental failure yesterday, my much prized gold tooth is no more. 26 years I have had that… I shall be seeing my dentist rather a lot this Summer. Thank goodness for emergency appointments yesterday and today. The perils of an aging bod!

Oldest son’s birthday this weekend, trying to decide if steak would be pushing my luck with the temporary fix as I join him and the family for a celebratory nosh. Life hey.

Mustn’t grumble! Wimbledon and knitting for me this afternoon.

  1. That little sweater is gorgeous. You have talented fingers.

  2. That sweater is just adorable! Hope your dental care happens quickly and without a lot of stress!

  3. Very cute and definitely a labour of love with those bobbles!
    We’re in dental wars together. My check up last week found a chipped lower molar and a shadow in the wisdom above which is a hole after X-ray. Oh well. πŸ™„

    • That is not Good news. What I can’t get my head round is how long they need at the moment for treatment, I am guessing they are still in catch up after Covid. Good luck.

  4. I LOVE the gray and yellow combo – so cute! Sorry to hear about your tooth, I hope it all gets sorted soon and that you’re not in pain.

    Enjoy the knitting and tennis – take care!

  5. Cute buttons and bobbles. So much work! mega-nana. Sorry to hear re tooth. Fillet steak?
