Yesterday saw me sitting in a late cut hay field knitting while my son hurtled about on his bike in a nearby wood.I made the most of the sunshine and had an enjoyable time all round.I ate lots of cake and drank lots of tea and picked stray strands of hay from out of my knitting when ever things got too tangled.
Some of you may remember seeing before this particular pattern from the 1940's that I have had my eye on for some time.The style is apparently "Ursula" but the model looks like she might suit the name too...
Well my sister kindly spun more of the British Polwarth fleece for me and my original intention was that it would be used for some knitted vests but I also thought the colour would look nice knitted up into this jumper so that is what I am doing.
not the true colour but beautifully spun
My knobbly bits don't look quite so neat as the ones in the photo,they look more like little buttons all neat and symmetrical and perfectly aligned,but I think it is working out alright at the moment.
