Notes

And it’s finished!! I am absolutely thrilled with my cardigan - pity it’s mid-summer here! I’ve wrapped up and talked about attaching the ribbon and the yarn I’ve used on my blog here.

This was a fantastic knit for chatting and watching gripping tv.

I found my tension for the colourwork was best when I gave up trying to use both hands. I changed colours by dropping one and loosely knitting with the next with the same hand, instead of holding a colour in each hand. Loose-ish is the key to perfect colourwork.

The sleeves on this hit my wrists perfectly. In hindsight I’d like to add perhaps on more inch because I tend to yank up my sleeves and I’d rather like them to fall just a little over my hand.
