Off the needles

We are in the middle of celebrating Christmas for the third time!  Our youngest daughter, Rachel,  was working over Christmas and New Year so has not been home until now.  The tree and decorations are still up and tomorrow is presents!  Needless to say there has not been a lot of time for craftiness so I am cheating and sharing a project I finished last year.

Rachel wanted a red jumper to replace a much loved bought one that had worn out.  So the challenge was to find a pattern and get it knitted in time. Unexpectedly finding a pattern was the hardest part, in the end I had to adapt one.  Thankfully it was done in time for Christmas and was one present that Rachel could open on Christmas Day itself – we delivered it a couple of weeks before hand.

So here is a picture of the finished jumper, knitted in 4 ply.  The collar does fold down over her shoulders if she wants it too.

Even more satisfying than finishing it on time is that Rachel loves it.


About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
