Postal Knitting

Postal Knitting

No, not like postal chess (knit one row, send it on, knit a row, send it on…)! I mean knitting something on behalf of someone, posting it to the person who requested it, and them sending it on to the intended recipient.

In my case, that means: me, my paternal grandmother, and her chiropodist (well, her as-yet-unborn baby).

It’s a v-neck cardigan with cables up the front, back and sleeves. I started on the sleeves and I’m now up to the raglan decreases. I love the stitch pattern. It’s basically a wrong-side broken rib, but it looks so sophisticated (to me, anyway).

I almost always knit both sleeves at the same time (even on adult garments) because of a few early “couple of rows short” incidents.

No more progress on Clapotis (or anything else for that matter), until the cardigan, mittens and hat are done. Wish me luck!


Because it's just me talking if you don't comment!
