Well hello there!
Things have been very quiet around these parts. There has been a little bit of sewing, but not much at all.
But there has been some knitting! Yes, on the warmest weekend of the year so far, I finished off my Cadence sweater. Finally! This is my first ever sweater, and I'm very pleased with the very fact of it.
Cadence KAL for newbie knitters. But I kept stalling: I stopped when I wanted to make some knitted Xmas pressies, then I started up again in February, and made really good progress until I stopped for no particular reason in mid-March. And I sort of forgot about it until last week, when I was rooting around for something to do while watching TV. I only had a sleeve to finish off (I can't believe I left it so long!).
I'm so encouraged by having completed this, that I've already planned my next sweater: the Ladies Classic Raglan by Jane Richmond, using a lovely wine coloured yarn. I'll be casting on this weekend.
Finally, I must thank Kristen of KristenMakes for being so amazing and helpful. I'm so grateful for the detailed emails when I got stuck - and for the amazingly helpful blogposts, which I'm sure I'll refer to again and again in the future.
1 x Wendy Aran (500g) in Petrol: £14
Cadence pattern: free!
I hope to be back soon with some more sewing stuff. I'm working on my second Darling Ranges muslin (I'm already wondering whether this dress is worth all the effort - how very defeatist of me).
Have a lovely weekend and speak soon!
