Finally the Musckat cardi - Plus next on the agenda
Finally....................... I've posted this on the forum and on Ravelry, but not here.... so here it is:
DROPS 101-22, knitted in Muskat colour 09. Exactly as pattern!
Next I'm going to do this:-
Yet another DROPS pattern (they appeal to my blonde nature) This one is DROPS 70-17 and is knit in Karisma Superwash, which is a 100% superwash wool, which is so lovely and soft when it's been washed. I have a pair of slouch socks made in it, and I will actually find things to wash with them so that they get done quickly and i can get them back on! I'm going to modify this pattern a bit though as I'm looking for a "Sunday Cardi" if you know what I mean. I'm going to knit it all in one colour, which is cream (I think I should have chosen grey now, but it's bought and I'm sure I'll like it - and at least it won't show the dog hairs) I'm also going to make it a wee bit smaller. The smallest size has a chest of 41", and as I'm only 35" (if I breathe in really hard and puff it all out as best i can) 41" is going to be a bit too baggy, so I'm aiming for around 38 - 39"! I might also make it just a tiny bit longer, maybe just an inch or so! The yarn should be here on Thursday, so it'll be on the needles by next weekend ready for the two hours in front of the tv watching the F1 GP!
