Knitting - WIP Wednesday

Wednesday has rolled around again.  The weeks seem to go so fast, or is it just me? I cast on my next shawl collar sweater last night.




Pattern - Design D from Sirdar 324 Vintage Snuggly
Yarn - Sirdar Denim Tweed.
Size 18"

I am making a few changes to the pattern, adding 2 x 2 ribbing on the hemline and cuffs.  I like tidy bottoms and I have a feeling the edges will roll and look untidy without it.  Lets face it we are at liberty to make any changes we like to a pattern.

Here is the finished sweater I was working on last week.  I had a mental block when trying to fit the collar on, its by no means right but I think I now know what to do differently.  Here's a reminder of the pattern details



And here is Jessica modelling her green/grey number.  Doesn't she look cute even if its a little bit big. Pattern details for this one here

  2. That green cardigan is gorgeous and suits Jessica perfectly. Mental blocks have been my knitting crisis this last week. Fortunately I banged my head on the wall so many times that I finally broke through and the little jacket I'm knitting should be finished by easter. So, hopefully this time round you'll fit the collar to the sweater with a hitch!
