Euro something or other….

Apparently there’s some football thingy on. What does that mean for me? Well I’m probably going to increase my knitting output over the next few weeks. Which is a good thing because it’s taken me a month to finish this.

I won’t even tell you how many times I had to rip it back and start again. I got there in the end though and I’m happy with how it came out. It’s my first time knitting an actual wearable garment – hats and scarfs don’t count. The pattern is the Little Daisy Cardi from ‘The third little Sublime hand knit book’ and I thought it was ok to follow. I find knitting patterns ambiguous I think because I’m a beginner knitter and I get myself tied up in knots sometimes. I’m sure I’ll get better though. I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino which I bought on sale somewhere – I think it’s shade 202. It has a lovely feel.
I’m all fired up to try the long-sleeved version now but I think I would make it a bit longer.
