Over the summer, I knitted a bit, but didn’t have any projects really going on, I made a little cardi and after that, I was left it bit uninspired. But last week I went on holiday with my mum and see gave me a ball of 3-ply and her vintage pattern to make a little matinee coat. Which is really cute, and you knit from the top down. My mum had finished making a different cardi from the same book. It was a Patons and Baldwins book, so quite old and looks like…
I think that it is really cute, but I need to go and buy buttons which I always find fun. As you start from the top you dont’ have shoulder seams and you do end up with a few stitches on the needle (around 280 in the end). And you have to be careful with the increasing so that you get the right sleeves and fronts. So I would suggest for the more experienced knitter. But there is a lot less sewing up involved in this. I had most of it done in the first two days, and finished it within the week.
The green one I made over easter and was given to a family friends baby, but I will have to wait and see who gets this although I definitely think the green is cuter then the cream. What are your thoughts?
