I finished off a cardigan for a friend, there wasn't so much to do just a sleeve and a half. Fortunately the boring front band had been finished and the stitching up didn't take too long, hurray for chunky wool.I made this little bolero for Esme from the Rowan Studio book 30 using just 100 g of pure cotton dk from my stock. The sleeves were supposed to have the same pretty band as the body but I didn't have enough yarn, don't tell Esme, they looked just fine plain.
A plain pair of socks for me using up a ball and a half of Sunbeam St Ives 4 ply. I've made Mr FF several pairs of socks with this 80% wool 20% nylon yarn, it washes and wears beautifully and the subtle colour mix takes a pattern well, such a pity its discontinued.
Finally this little cardigan for newborn Anna, another granddaughter for my friend Ann. Its Puss baby cardigan from Patons, an old pattern that I liked because the body and yolk are all knitting together leaving very little stitching up. The yarn is Freedom Gorgeous 4 ply by Twilleys 75% bamboo.
All a bit sombre aren't they, just like this bloomin weather and sadly it's not much better in Lazio. Things had better improve soon as we will be heading that way shortly, I'll keep you informed.
