Is completed and I'm very happy with it. I even did the right thing and blocked it. The things we go through for our loved ones!
Knitted in Rowan something or other (see earlier post on the topic, I can't be bothered to go and find the ball bands). It does look as if the left hand side is shorter than the right but believe me when I say that it's the way I'm standing. I took a picture facing the other way and the right hand side looked shorter in that one. I love the slip stitch pattern on the band, cuffs and collar, it's beautiful but very easy to do. I liked it so much that when I'd finished the cardigan I used the remaining blue yarn to knit a river square in the same pattern.
I think that it will fit Annie okay and if it doesn't I'll just have to keep it for myself. I'm not too sure about the short sleeves but she particularly liked them as she's an infant school teacher and is always having to push her sleeves up (nasty sticky things children!).
Other news involves me washing and carding the fleece I bought the other weekend.
Here's the Ryeland /Jacob still draining in the bath.
Here's the Ryeland /Corriedale /Manx.
And here's the Bleu du Maine. I just love the variety of shades in this it's gorgeous.
Of course the hive of activity that has been going on has nothing to do with the crazy purchase of this little darling last Sunday.
I am still repeating "I am bad, I am bad, I am wicked and I will die a pauper".
But I don't really care!
