It’s currently looking pretty on the back of the sofa 🙂
The second, probably more important finish is Jess’ cardigan! This is another project that I started last Winter when I miraculously grasped the knack of knitting after many years of abject failure. Of course I had to go for a full on fancy, dancy cable cardigan for my first ever full size garment! The pattern is in this book by Anna Wilkinson. I used a lovely denim blue yarn by UK Alpaca which is really soft and should keep Jess nice and snuggly.
All-in-all I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out and it fits Jess which is a definite bonus! I’m going to attempt a cardigan for myself next…With all this lovely yarn I have hanging around I figured I ought to make some pretty storage for projects in progress. Until now they’ve been sitting in the ugly plastic mail bags that they arrived in and that’s a bit daft. I couldn’t wait to sneak some Priory Square in to a new project…
…and it was about time I used some precious Anna Maria Horner.
I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s considerably prettier than grey plastic! I’m in the process of making an alternative version of this bag and a pattern might be in the works 😉 Catch you soon x
