WIP Wednesday

I've got back in to knitting my colourwork cardigan. I've not only finished the second sleeve but I've also started joining them on to the body, exciting!

I'm hoping that I can block the stitch work a bit neater and also hopefully add a little extra length as my daughter has had a growth spurt during the time I've been ignoring this project. Most unhelpful of her lol. Should be wide enough in the chest though as she's fairly skinny so maybe I could just pick up some stitches on the sleeves and hem to make it a bit longer :-)

I'm linking in with Tami and Ginny, hop over to their blogs to see what other people are up to this week :-)

    1. Certainly feels like it lol It's the 2 years size but it's knitted with fingering weight yarn. I'm a little anxious about cutting the steek at the end!

    1. This is only my second time. I knitted a fake fair isle hat when I first started knitting but my floats at the back were too tight and it barely fitted a toddler

    1. Thank you :) The camera angle is flattering, it's much less neat if you look closer lol

    1. Thanks :) The original design was knitted in natural coloured yarn so shades of brown. As soon as I saw the pattern I imagined it in bright garish colours
