I saw the pattern for this lovely jerkin in the window of my local haberdashery shop last week. The baby looks a little like my grandson, Sam, so of course I had to buy the pattern, didn't I!
I had just the right yarn to make up the jerkin - some of my handspun, which has been sitting in a basket for a while now. Do you like the colour? Being handspun, it varies from dark to lighter shades. I like that. I like a bit of variation.
So now I'm doing the V-neck of the front and it won't be long before I'm on to the borders.
I love knitting. It's very relaxing in the evenings after all the chores are done.
I like to put my feet up, watch TV or listen to the radio and knit. Bliss!
