Year of the Cardi!

Oh my haven't posted in a while and blogger have changed things!

Just sewn buttons on my new cardi and realised I hadn't posted about the one before.. so will start with that one Sullivan by Whitney Gegg-Harrison

 Yarn Sirdar Country Style in the colourway Berber Fleck 596
Great pattern and learnt lots from this one, it has a folded hem for the body, icord cast on for sleeves, both of which I forgot to take photos off! then finished with a icord edging which you should be able to see from photos its a little on the large size but will be ideal in the winter with a long sleeved top. The size issue is more from me changing yarn and needle size and if I was to make another would go down in size.. but I am happy with it.

Hot off the needles in another fab design from Chic Knits Derica Kane

Yarn Sirdar Country Style colourway Soft Teal 602.. love this yarn, its easy to work with and easy to wash in the machine.. my kind of yarn lol

The pattern is brilliant as is all of Chic Knit patterns for me anyway.. they just seem to work well and the fit .. fits.. did make mine longer and did full length sleeves.

This makes my 5th cardi of the year! and already cast on for number 6 Chic knits realeased 2 new ones this Autumn and doing the other Velynda in Sirdar again, using their new version of Country style which is in 50g balls with more wool content and in a gorgeous Cranberry colour.. more when that is done.

There has been other knitting some for Anni, midway through one.. just waiting on the next part and a special knit for a special person which I can't show till they see it, which hopefully won't be too long as its winging its way to them :)

Well Blogger you did make adding photos hard work but got there I hope in the end!
Till next time x

Beautiful knits, what patience! I struggle to knit things which take more than 2 balls. I've just found you on Ravelry, hooray!
