Playing Sherlock!

Yesterday I mentioned another frogging problem. Here is a picture of the back of the cardigan. As it has no official name I have decided to call it 'Go with anything' as its a lovely neutral colour.

The pattern is an old one, mostly handwritten, scribbled on and generally a mess, which may explain the errors on making it.
It's a Hayfield design pattern no. 4400. Basically its a set in short sleeve, button up, 'V' neck, with the front bands picked up horizontally.

It uses standard DK needles 3.25mm and 4.00mm. I am using RYC Cashcotton in SH619. As you can see by the 2nd photo it isn't the most complicated of patterns. Which makes it more frustrating to find it isn't working out.
It is very 80's but I love it!! I will be tackling it again tonight when I finish work. As the saying goes O Lord give me patience, but hurry!!!!

Bye for now

Too complacent ...... oh sugar honey iced tea!!!!

Have you ever been so comfortable and relaxed with a pattern that you forget to concentrate? I have had a day off work today. Spent most of the morning knitting my lacy cardigan, catching up with my favourite tv programmes. Then I found that the front patterns do not match, they are odd, looking at the finished photo I have definitely made a right muddle of it. I have frogged some of it and left the rest, really can't face it. It is now for the foreseeable future abandoned. ..... I am sooo annoyed with myself!!! I have decided to take the attitude of this furry friend I found on the net, and CHILL!!

Fortunately my local heroes St Helens RLFC are having more success than I am right now, moving up to second in the Superleague.
They are on form!!

On an even happier note, my lovely boy became a teenager today, he is becoming a fine young man and everyone speaks highly of him. Happy Birthday son, I love you x.

Bye for now keep tweakin - even if sometimes you end up frogging!!!
