Cardigan

The finished pieces for this cardigan and flower brooch have been on the back of the couch half sewn together for over a month.  Finished the sewing last night and crocheted the edges.
Design 12, Cleckheaton Book 950 - Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply Celeste (85% wool, 5% alpaca, 5% silk),
the colour is Poppy
 I'll be giving the cardigan to a girlfriend when I see her on Tuesday.

Having a bit of a knitting craze (in amongst quilting) at the moment before summer hits.  Am about 2/3 the way through another cardigan - the same design as the green one I knitted for myself a couple of months ago.  This will be a present too.  Many years ago I used to knit year-round with the fan blowing in summer, but not these days.  Stitcheries tend to take over in summer.

Another rainy weekend on the South Coast.  Time for some maintenance at the hairdresser then, hopefully, some more ditch-stitching on The Pirate Quilt before knitting while watching the last episode of "Monroe" - hope we see some more of this show.
