I tried it at home watching TV, at home on my own with no distractions, at Knitting group, with my mum by my side reading it out but no joy. I just love this cardigan and I REALLY wanted one. I bought the wool specially for this pattern, I never normally do that so I was doubly disappointed.
My mum took it to start it off again for a ninth time and then she said, "Shall I just finish it for you?" Music to my miette madness ears.
She used four out of the five balls of Rowan Creative Focus worsted I bought in a petrol colour. It was a bargain and came in at under £12 for the cardigan. There is enormous yardage on these balls: 100g contains 200m (220yrds). The content is 75% and 25% Alpaca so the washing machine is out of the question.
A Huge thank you to my mum. I love my new cardigan.
