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.

The yarn is perfect for a dolman – Little Wool Co. 50/50 mohair merino mix, a DK weight yarn.  Pattern link here.  I used up almost every single metre of 3 hanks of yarn for this project (600g).

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!
