Yarn Along

I love love love this little cardigan I made for Miss F. I only started it a week ago and its already finished along with two hats. Such a simple and pretty pattern. Made from Sirdar chunky on 5 1/2mm (US9) it just knitted up so quick. There is a lot of shaping to do ,so you row count the whole time ,but no button or neck band. It is fastened with a snap fastener hidden under the flower.

The pattern is Sirdar 1772. You can make a plain one tone cardigan and use a button instead of a flower for a little lad. But if you need a baby jumper for a gift in a hurry this could be the one.

Close up of the flower which is made of a contrast yarn, I used a pink tiny tot yarn left over from a previous offering.I made two hats, the first looked too small so I made the size larger as well just in case.

What about the book I hear the cry. Well I am ashamed to say I abandoned the book I started last week. I didn’t follow the plot and I got muddled on who the characters were. It is rare for me to abandon a book, after all I am the person who waded through The Old Curiosity Shop and Little Dorrit, but this one just bored me, so I gave up.

Robert Harris is a favourite author so I knew I would be ok with this one, The Fear Index. Still at early stages of getting into it, but I know that I will!
