Georgey Porgey

Well - I've actually finished something - that's a thing I feel like I haven't done in a while - I've been far too busy doing diy !!!

So here is Jacob in George - this is a great picture of Jacob, but not so good of George

So here is a clearer picture of George for your perusal !

This was a great little knit - it looks more complicated than it is due to the cabling - which is simplicity itself - I love raglans, so I was already in love with it and I just love the way it fits him - the only strange thing is the pockets - you knit them and then sew them on - I mean, they look OK, but they would have looked much better if they had been knitted integrally and it really wouldn't have been that hard to do - I think that is the only thing I would change if I were to do this again - which I may well do - probably as a gift. I thought I had better get this finished so that Jacob can at least get some wear out of it before we head off for desert climes !!

I am now trying to do some for a good friend of mine, who is 40 week after next - she really like the colour of my Rosy cardy and I have some of the Cotton Angora left over, so I thought I would try do her Magknits, Nothing but a T-Shirt - I am just currently trying to get something like the gauge required to do it - I hope I can do it, I'm a bit short on time - so if anyone has ever substitued Cotton Angora for Calmer - I'd appreciate any tips.

Right - off to eat my dinner - alone again !

Hi Becky I have been tagged, again, so I am passing it on to you, only if you want to, I feel these things are like chain letters and only do them if I feel like it. Info over at my blog.
