Hooray – my first knitted garment!
I’ve always thought I’d have ‘arrived’ in a knitting sense when I make my first adult jumper, and whilst that still seems a way off, I’m pretty pleased to have completed my first proper garment, even if it is mini-sized. The arrival of my friend’s daughter was a great excuse to try making a simple cardigan and I found this free pattern on Ravelry. The name ‘5-hour Sweater’, I hasten to add, only applies to speedy knitters and mine was completed bit by bit, rather more slowly.
I’m glad I didn’t know whether it was a girl or a boy, as it made me to pick a gender-neutral mustard yellow colour which I just love with the brown buttons. It’s not a colour you see on babies that often, but I think it looks darn cool, even though I say so myself!
