Something amazing happened this week. I finished knitting a cardigan which my daughter is now wearing. That is quite an achievement for me I can't remember when I last knitted an item of clothing other that hats, scarves, mittens or socks. I think it was about 10 years ago.Whilst on a theatre trip to Aylesbury last April, we had time to wonder around the market before the show started. I came across a wonderful knitting stall Threadbare Yarns. They had some amazing yarns all displayed beautifully in baskets. I took a liking to this Marble Chunky wool by James C Brett. My daughter flicked through the patterns and found a sleeveless cargidan that she liked.
I started knitting the next day. The wool was wonderful to knit with. Due to my other projects, like a true knitter, I kept putting this one down and going back to it. I finally finished the knitting and sewing up 9 months later.
I was worried that I'd run out of wool before I finished. This was all that was left. I've never had a knitting project that was so close to running out of wool.
