some colour work for the spring

I was having a look through some old patterns ready to throw out, when I came across a Patons Booklet with a lovely little fairisle cardigan and sweater set. I decided that I had most of the yarn in my stash already so it was a good project to tackle head on!


I have only done about 3 quarters of the pattern repeat and am fairly happy with the result so far. I haven't done anything like this for years, so it will be a bit of a challenge for me not to mess the pattern up - let alone get the increases correct for the sleeves!!! I am hoping this will be anive thing for Leah to wear in the summer when you have the cooler evenings, especially when we go to Cornwall!

That looks really pretty Esther! Which yarn are you using? I'm about to start little similar work for my soon to born godchild.

Wow - Very pretty. Leah is a lucky girl to have a mummy that can knit her pretty girly things :)
