What’s been on the needles this week ?

Several things 🙂 . Most of them will stay on needles for months until the spirit moves me to finish them, but what I did manage to finish this week was one that I started about 3 years ago and then fell out of love with the colour. It’s a pale tangerine Shetland  wool cardigan with little cables, modelled today by my brown-eyed Pintucks.

She’s a later one, #3852 and her eyes should be stable. She’s also wearing a lovely pair of silk blend ‘shortalls’ ? and blouse by Frances Trickett and shoes and socks by Mary Sampson, aka Betsymay. It felt good to finish this cardigan finally and get the use of my needles back 🙂 !

The other thing I’ve been knitting is a reindeer jumper which will have Norwegian style braid and clasps when it’s finished. You’re seeing it when most of the thread-sewing-in has been done. These little knits take a couple of hours just to weave the threads in on the inside.

  1. Love your short haired Pintucks 🙂 and the pale tangerine cardigan goes well with her Frances Trickett shortalls.
    I love your Norwegian style sweaters and that one looks like it will be another gorgeous one.

  2. That’s a very nice cardigan, I have a little tiny jumper here which is very similar in colour, not a colour that I would normally choose but I really like it 🙂 Your Pintucks looks very nice in this 🙂
