It's been another quiet week here on my blog, we've had more visitors and Angus has also been poorly which has made for a very tired me! This whole month has been a bit of a blur, we've had lots of lovely visitors a and been away, Angus and I have both been poorly and Stuart has been working lots. I haven't even made it to my knitting group once this month, which I have really been missing. Although this month has been crazy busy I am really pleased to share today Angus' monster sweater completed.
This sweater has been a long time coming, I checked my knitting notebook and I started it last July! I haven't been working on the whole time, in fact I think I put it down for about 7 months. If I'm honest this sweater was probably too advanced for my skills. It was a lot of hard work for me and I had to ask my friend several times for help! Having said that I want so pleased yesterday when it was finally finished and because it's challenged me so much I feel I've added lots of new skills to my knitting.
New skills -
2. Using a circular instead of dpns
3. Picking up stitches correctly
I should have blocked my pieces separately! Lesson learnt!
The other great thing about the sweater is Angus loves it!
