has been kind enough to tag me for this award
and I have to tag at least four others who then have to link back here – and so on – you all know the drill.
I almost always end up nominating the same people -and they know who they are – so I’ve decided to spread the joy a little further this time:
you may all consider yourselves awarded
now I know this sort of pales into insignificance when set against the goings on over in the land of the free and the home of the brave
but the blogosphere has to keep on chugging along even when momentous things are busy being momentous
so here’s the current knitting:
vintage baby cardi pattern found among BJC’s late mother’s gear and dragged home in triumph from Tassie
needles – 3mm Kp Options and dpns
yarn – 1 ball of Patons Big Baby 4 ply [ fingering ]
the pattern was already a top down but written for knitting on straights and in separate pieces below the yoke so I’ve just converted it to more modern practice, to whit: back and fronts in one piece and sleeves in the round.
I’ve left off the lace pattern below the yoke as well … to make it a little more boyish in keeping with the colour.
there has been quilty stuff happening as well but I’ll save that for another day
