Green Cardi finished!

Hi there!

Firstly I have a Ta-Dah!!!!!

My Little Green Indifference is all complete.  This project was cast on in July (2012!!!)   The fronts were a doddle but the sleeves, well they didn't go so well,  they were far too baggy, so I frogged them back and then it ended up down the back of the sofa languishing in it's bag.  I dragged it back out in June ~ the year!   The pattern can be found here ~ it's a tie front shrug made from the top down.  Instead of making the ties I continued straight down to the bottom.
I made i-cord ties to tie under the bust.  I left the cuff edges to roll back and picked up 2 stitches for every 3 rows around the fronts knit 6 rows.  I'm pleased with the turned back hem and I love the colour of the yarn ~ 4 ply Stylecraft Life.   I think it will have lots of wear.
 What a lovely few days we've had of September sunshine.   There hasn't been a cloud in the sky.  Mr Clicky and me could be laying a laminate floor in the bathroom, but we decided it was an outdoorsy sort of day instead. 
 I sat in my favourite place in the garden and knitted.  I'm back on my frogged stripy cardigan and still loving the yarn ~ Drops Alpaca and the stripes in Drops Delight, good fun.  
 Tipper joined me in the sunshine.
I thought you might like to see our new 'knitted' bedside lights.  I got them in The Range.   I like them very much.
School is back in full swing, and the germs and bugs are being passed around.  3 of our teachers have been ill with colds this weekend!

That's me for now, let's hope this lovely sunshine continues.

See you soon.........Clicky Needles.
