We went away last week to my Uncle and Aunties caravan and I took only this project with me to finish - no distractions, starting a new project on a whim, getting out the sewing machine etc. - I just forced myself into a corner and it worked (it always does in fact!)
The knitted flower was a nice touch.
When she put it on she said "Ooooh! this is warm" and my heart felt warm too. I knitted it in Katia Aran weight which is 50% cotton and 50% acrylic and it knits up really well. This colour is called fuchsia. It is called the warrior cardigan from Sublime 630
The reason I ran out of wool is because I made full length sleeves because I don't like 3/4 for children, they get stuck up their coat sleeves and cause a major kerfuffle when we are just about to leave the house vaguely on time.
I found the buttons in a lovely wool shop in Sutton-on-Sea which were a perfect match. You know this cardigan that I used to hate? well now I love it and so does she! Jo x
ps. I'm off to catch up on some blogging and see what you lot have been up to this week while I have been away eating ice cream, making sandcastles and enjoying the seaside.
