Knitting & crochet

Here, as promised, is the Aran cardigan that I made for myself. I like it so much that I am going to make myself another one in beige, but this time I shall add pockets. I had some wool left over and so I knitted my little great-nephew an Aran jumper with it. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it before I gave it to his mum!
I had a lot of ends of cones of wool and decided, while I was waiting to buy the wool for my beige cardigan, I would crochet some squares and make a little bed/lap cover for my dear old mum! I  made 5 squares of 7 different colour combinations and tried to put the squares together in a continuous pattern. I also made 3 different variations of square pattern, just to make it a little more interesting. I only had enough of 3 colours to do the edging, but I think it worked out quite nicely!

The cables are so pretty, no wonder you are going to make yourself another. I really, really like the lap blanket, too. Such pretty colors and the edging is perfect!

I'm astounded at the speed that you finish these projects! The sweater is beautiful! I always avoided cardigans because they require more 'engineering' to get the buttonholes. I believe that's the moss stitch in the background. Is the afghan your own pattern?




and I love the afghan! Was
