Posted yesterday, received today so I can show and tell…

The chunky cardi is off my needles and away πŸ˜ƒ I have actually made 2 of these for N’s daughters. Sadly one of the girls had a bit of a wait for her’s but I finished it on Saturday, blocked Sunday and posted yesterday🎁

I bought some better hangers for Show and Tell purposes but N and B have squirreled them away for their own outfits – BOYS! So I had to make do with one that the dry-cleaning came back on 😣 It doesn’t hang that wellπŸ€”

The pattern came from Let’s Knit and is made using Stylecraft chunky, parchment. The pattern is worked over 10 rows:

Rows 1-3 Knit, rows 4, 6, 8, 10 k2, p5, rows 5, 7, 9 Knit

The nice thing about chunky knits is they knit up quickly although as I was nearing the end not quickly enough. And then there was the issue of buttons!!! Happily I bought enough when my local wool shop was open between lockdown 2 and 3!!!

Celebration time, all ready for packing up and posting 🎈🎈🎈

A couple more items to finish and then the Christmas knitting is all done and then I can fill my head with something new πŸ˜„ But my knitting basket looks almost empty now the chunky cardi has goneπŸ˜‰

Woolly wishes,

Jane β™‘β™‘β™‘

    1. Thank you Lisa. My stepdaughter is currently working from home and sitting at a computer for long spells so needs something cosy. And yes it is a fabulous feeling getting something off the needles and making itself useful πŸ˜‰


    1. Thank you Claire. There were a couple of sneaky peaks when I started the first one. N’s girls are twins so have the same to prevent arguments and they read my blog so hence the lack of posts πŸ˜‰

    1. Looking through the stash to see what I can use up rather than buying more yarn. Non-essential shops (yarn shops are essential for my well-being) are closed at the moment so I can only get more yarn on line. 😣

    1. Thank you. It is nice knowing something that I have made will be worn. My knitting basket is far from empty. I am trying to be disciplined and get a few more bits and pieces finished before I start something new πŸ€”
