The Cardigan Commenceth

I am making a cardigan from granny squares in the nicest (and most expensive) wool I’ve ever used. It is this:   Here is a square:   Here is the waistcoaty bit (I haven’t done the sleeves yet):   It looks quite clumpy at the moment. It won’t. It’s a WIP!

David Bowie phone case and other stuff…

Cakes, Bubushka Dolls, Scarves and Blankets
