You’ll remember I’m sure the Fairhope cardigan I’ve been knitting.
And then, of course I ran out of yarn!
But now it’s finished.
In fact it’s been finished for a few weeks.
But I’ve got to tell you it’s not a happy ending.
Gorgeous, no? Elegant and cosy and just generally lovely.
Although, in fairness to the lovely Kim, the pattern has been a joy to knit and the cardigan itself looks exactly as it should, just with a few inches extra length.
I’m only sharing this with you because I know you won’t laugh.
But really…..this is an amazing pattern that is just completely the wrong style for me. I think it’s that good old learning curve rearing it’s head again!
Thankfully Ma really enjoys such tedious tasks as unravelling unfortunate knits. Which is a godsend as frankly I’d rather stick red hot pins in my eyes. I’d even gone so far as to get permission from the designer to sell this cardigan.
But I love the colour.
And let’s face it…if this is the worst thing that happens to me this week then the world is a pretty cool place. So watch this space.
