Hooray for Hs finished present
I was really excited on Friday night as I finished Hs 40th Birthday present. His birthday was on the 29th February so not really that late I guess and he gets all of winter to enjoy it. Next project for H is a nice scarf from the remaining wool.
Pattern: Cobblestone Pullover by Jared Flood. From the magazine Interweave Knits Fall 2007. I did alter the neck slightly as I didn't like the way it finished as it was mean't to just roll.
Yarn: Jo Sharp, Silkroard Aran Tweed in Wintergrass
Sticks: Circular and double pointed bamboo ones
Time: Late January till 24th May
What I learnt: I am not a knitter. I put my heart and soul into it. Most of all it was knitted with love. It is far from perfect but H loves it and I love him for being so excited about it. I am excited to start something new and on a smaller scale as I was worried the whole time I was knitting as to if it was going to fit or be nice enough to wear.
Photos taken on location at Robertson in the Southern Highlands. It took us 2 hours (or H 2 hours to drive there on Saturday morning). We met up with our good friends from Canberra and sat in the sun enjoying a lovely picnic. Another fun filled Saturday thanks to all family members behaving and kids playing nicely and good food and great company.
