When I'm away from blogland like I have been, I feel very out of touch, I haven't had the energy to do anything, so I've not been seeing how everyone's getting on. I hope you've all been fine and well? No upsets? No disasters? I hope not, I really do.
I was left some nice messages on my last post, I just wanted to say thank you for those, I appreciate them enormously, they make my day, thank you!
And the Lupins and Hollyhocks in these photos? They're not real, they're fake flowers. I used to have an obsession with silk flowers, it's what I used to spend my money on, and cram the house with them. I suppose as obsessions go, it's quite a strange one. Anyway, the flowers in these photos aren't fresh. (A lady passing behind me on the path, as Hugo was taking these photos, said to her little boy "now move by quickly, this lady is having her photo taken with an ENORMOUS bunch of flowers").
All the details of this knitted cardigan are in my last post, so I don't think I need to repeat them, just go to my previous post if you want to know about the pattern and yarn details, if that's o.k? Thank you.
This cardigan is very, very comfy. I wouldn't say it's the most flattering cardigan in the world, it's knitted in a chunky yarn, and so the effect when wearing this yarn knitted up can be to make one look bulkier than usual. If you were skinny, and had a flat chest, this cardigan might look fabulous.
For me, this cardigan is like putting on a warm hug, it's not about being glamorous.
The Quince and Co yarn I knitted it with, is super duper soft and gorgeous, I would knit with all their yarns if they are as good as this Osprey yarn.
Cheerio! Love Vanessa xxx
