Is'nt it the best feeling in the world when a project is finished? Especially one that you get to wear and enjoy! It began HERE and has ended here! And despite all of my frustrated unpicking.... Ive thoroughly enjoyed it! Based loosely on a free pattern from Ravelery.com I sort of made up all of the changes as I knitted (hence the unpicking).
I really wanted a peplum style cardigan so did a smidge of increasing on the twisted rib. by the way I LOVE twisted ribbing! It kicks out just enough to be flattering skimming over womanly hips!
The peplum shows well from the side!
I was a little worried that the colour change wool would look naff, but am pleasantly surprised. New fabric arrived today,and guess what the colours in my lucky bargain bag were..... chocolate brown! So thrilled! I plan on making my favourite long A line skirt to go with this... I must finish my new brown HOMILY shoes, quick like!
What shall I stash in the knitting bag next?
