Remember some time ago when I confessed to finding some knitting lost and forgotten about down the side of the sofa? No... well, it doesn't matter...
Because I finished it! And what's more... I really like it, which is unusual for me as mostly when I knit things for me to wear they end up too big and baggy (I know... I know I should knit a tension square) and I never wear them.
I'm not quite so keen on my inane attempts at a selfie using my iPad...
What possessed me to grin at myself like some demented woman...
Not much better with the camera and the mirror... but you get the idea. The yarn, which was beautiful to knit with, is a beautiful organic wool called Gilliat from a French company de rerum natura.
And the pattern... well, I seem to have mislaid it... but when I find it down the side of the sofa I'll let you know! The best thing about it was that it was knitted all in one, so no seams at all, just sewing in loose ends and putting the buttons on!
I was so pleased that I entered it into the homecrafts section of our village show last weekend and it got second prize! I didn't mind it coming second because my socks came first!
I'll be back next week with some new deep and meaningful work ;)
Meanwhile I'll leave you with cake just because it is the weekend.
Must fly... we're off to a "French Evening" at our village hall. Not sure what that will entail but these village things are always a laugh and it's a good chance to catch up with lots of people.
Hope you have a good weekend... doing anything fun?
