Well, I never thought for one minute that some of my Mum’s 40 year old wool would get used up but the reality is I have enjoyed making this.
Of course Max thought it was a huge game, running off with my current ball of wool and beating it up in a corner!
Even Hippie thought it was wonderful – I found all my knitting in her bed twice!!
But, I finally got it finished!
You saw the early pic:
Where I had started to put different colours in ‘cos there was never going to be enough main colour.
It grew very quickly and soon I could see how I wanted it to look – I only followed the pattern for the size so this is true designer wear….
And soon I was ready to sew it up, but with what? None of my needles would take the chunky wool, so it was back to Mum’s sewing box..
Just look – a needle for all occasions!!!
Max just loved it – I’m sure he thought it was a soft new blanket just for him.
Hippie decided just to lay on the settee and watch from a distance… if Max was involved she didn’t want to play..
So I now have a new designer wear jumper!
Just the thing – instead of a coat for this time of year!
