I’m currently in the middle of knitting a nice green sweater for myself. Thereby hangs a very long but amusing tale regarding this choice of colour, the yarn, and especially the pattern. I actually bought green because of a lovely skirt I found in a charity shop. It would have been expensive new, so worth splashing £4.95 on. The jumper to go with it though has cost me about £104 so far! I started off with one yarn that matched the skirt pattern well but however hard I tried, I couldn’t get the tension correct, so changed yarn and patter. So the tale continued. I love knitting, I reacquainted myself with the art when 1000s of poppies were needed for the Armistice commemorations last year. Like riding a bike, once you’ve learnt the basics, the rest falls into place. I have several other projects planned and can’t wait to be browsing my favourite suppliers!
