2010 - No. 38
Pattern: Design G Sweater from farmyard girls and tractor boys Book 356
Yarn: Moda Vera Tiziana, blue about 3 balls
Needles: 4mm and 5mm (6mm for the neckband)
The only problem I had with this sweater was the neckband. I had to use larger needles for the neckband as I was casting off too tight and there was no possible way it would have fit over his head so I went up to a size 6mm last night and it is now quite stretchy which I was happy about after knitting this neckband 3 times!! I do hope he likes it and I bought him a set of Flat Stanley storybooks too which he should hopefully enjoy.
Also on the needles are some garter stitch cardigans in a 6 month size which I hope to pop into my SIL babies pressies. I havent posted it off yet as I want to include a few more things in the parcel. I am knitting these garter stitch cardies in Cleckheaton Country Naturals which always knits up nicely. I am also waiting on the second clue for Tikki's KAL which should keep me busy over the weekend.
Isabelle is marching in the Djerriwarrh Festival tomorrow with her dancing group so I am hoping the weather is as beautiful as today. Okay that is it for now, see you later.
