A couple of finished items

I’ve finished three things lately – one is a shawl for Claire’s mum to take on holiday, a jumper for myself and a cardigan for myself!

Maureen modelling her shawl

Simone

The shawl and jumper were pretty straight forward, I got to block a jumper – something I’d never done before – but I had to reknit the cardigan as I’d gone wrong somewhere (the sleeves are fitted, but the armholes turned out massive!)

I don’t have pics of the cardigan yet; it’s blocking and I still need to get buttons, once I have those; I’ll show you.

The shawl was out of a book, it was supposed to be knit as a tube (bloody weird construction, IMO), but Maureen wanted a stole, which was very easy to convert. The pattern wasn’t brilliantly written, but it all worked out in the end.

The jumper is Simone from French Girl Knits and I knit it with Cascade 220 Superwash (which blocked amazingly!) I think Cascade has just become my favourite yarn!
