It feels funny to be able to bring you two finished objects today. As things worked out, I finished the Dolman a couple of days ago, but it has taken a while to dry.
I’m particularly taken with the twisted stitch edgings.
And now, finally, a year after I started it(!), is my Windsor.
After I got over my initial lack of enthusiasm for knitting a second sleeve in the round, this project finished very quickly.
It’s very sweet, I think. Certainly the cardigan I’ve been looking for to go over a summer dress.
Rav link here for mods and pattern details. I wasn’t sure this project would fit me while I was knitting it. I thought the proportions might not be that good for me, but now that it’s finished, I’m glad to say it’s all fine!
The yarn is a very beautiful New Zealand felted merino that I got on TradeMe (NZ equiv of eBay) a while ago. I am not sure if it is still available. I have tracked something that looks like it down, but have yet to obtain a sample to see if it’s the same thing. I will let you know how I get on!
Thanks to the eldest son for the photos!
