knitting

I finished this jersey recently, I was so proud of it
I made the pattern myself
I knit it partly on the knitting machine
Because its a chunky yarn it was hard work dragging the carriage backwards and forwards

And then I sewed it up and tried it on
...and its too small

I washed it yesterday and tried stretching it in the tumble dryer (its acrylic) and it did grow a bit, but not enough


Here is a closeup of the speckled yarn


I dont have the heart to unravel it so it will be donated
(my daughters dont want it)


And some pink fingerless gloves

There are more gloves and 2 shawls that I need to photograph as well, they need blocking.
Its been a busy season :)
