Good Grief - is it Wednesday already?
Well, at least I've got something to show you. I've been working on a cardigan for Molly, my granddaughter, but it's really hard to photograph...
It's actually a very pretty yarn - King Cole Galaxy - a rich aubergine in colour with sequins and very sparkly...
The colour is a bit truer in the picture above. Do you have trouble getting the right colour in your photos? It's the bane of my life, dealing largely with knitting and crochet, as I do.
The pattern is called Granny's Favourite by Georgie Hallam and it has been a bit of a pain to knit. I find the written pattern very hard to follow and, failing to get a response from e-mailing the designer, I had to make assumptions and do my own thing on several occasions.
However, I think it will turn out all right in the end, and I think Molly will like it. She chose the yarn in the first place, albeit a few years ago, cough, cough.
The cardigan is worked from the neck down, which I like very much and I have almost finished the body. I'm hoping to get the sleeves done by the end of the week and post it off before she grows out of it!
