Blogtoberfest Day 6…Cast Off

I’ve been knitting up a storm lately. Knitting is one of those things that I’ve been doing for years, but not on a regular basis. I can go 2 or 3 years without picking up a knitting needle, then I get a burst of inspiration and I can’t put them down. I just finished this cardigan / bolero. It’s a pattern called ‘the Fan’ by Marian Isager from her book Japanese Inspired knits. I made a long sleeved version (which I need to photograph) and I like it so much that I made a short sleeved one. I rarely knit the same pattern twice but this was a really interesting knit. Its in a bamboo yarn in the most beautiful bluey-green lightly mottled colouring. I just love it!

  7. It’s lovely – you’re very clever. I wish I had the patience and skill to knit but I just don’t. Good on you for joining in Blogtoberfest again!

  8. Your cardie is lovely; I love handknitted things when they’re finished. And I love your local ops shops … I never find anything anywhere near as good as yours. The ones near me are hopeless.
