Happy New Year to everyone, I hope your 2016 is off to a good start. My year is off to a very slow start, I spent the first week mostly sleeping as I had the flu. In a positive light, maybe I’m just getting any illness out of the way early!￼
Being confined to bed, I thought it would be a good time to work on any unfinished knitting – like this cardigan I started in August:
It’s a chunky knit, made with 10mm needles and Byzantum Double chunky yarn. The pattern is from an old Woman’s Weekly Magazine:
The reason it sat unfinished for so long, was that I thought I’d lost the pattern. It turns out that I had put it away safely inside a large book on knitting….and then forgot completely! But now I’ve lost the needles I was using……ffs! So while I try to remember which safe place they’re hiding in, I started an embroidery…….
It’s ages since I hand embroidered anything, but I have a ton of embroidery transfers from old magazines (this elephant must be twenty years old!)
So that’s my New Year off to a thrifty start, I look forward to seeing what everyone else makes this year. xx
