I finished off this over the weekend last week, but its taken me a while to sort photos cos I've been on nights all week:-( I'm not thrilled with the result, I have to say!!! It looks fine if my arms are in the air, but when I stand, it looks really baggy around my chest, the st st section above the rib, and its putting me off wearing it tbh........... I could do with a little stuffing in my bra I think, then perhaps it would fit better!!! We'll see, but I suspect it will be one of my "in the house" handknits, which is a bit of a shame. I used stylecraft dk pure wool, which is machinewashable, and gives nice crisp stitches, quite similar to the tess dawson merino I used for Cinnabar, but a little rougher. I think it will soften after a wash though, so pleased with it really!
I've started a pair of monkey socks for me! I loved this pattern when I took part in the monkey swap, and thought I would get a pair otn! I have a few skeins of Cherry tree hill supersock in my stash, but this is the first time that I've actually knitted with it, and I really like it! Nice and soft:-)
I decided that once I had finished my sweater a month sweater, I would work on socks and wips, so apart form the monkeys, I've been working on the Bergere V neck jumper which I knitted the back of over a year ago. I really like this jumper, and the yarn, so have been enjoying knitting the front of that. I might get the front finished in january I think, and then I can move onto another wip next month. i think that I will make another Central park hoodei for my february sweater. Probably in some wendy aran whic I can throw in the washing machine. I wear my first CPH for work on night shift, and always get lots of compliments form my patients, who generally ask if I made it myself too:-)
And finally, my new favourite accessory!!!! Piglottie made me a gorgeous bag for Christmas, and its brilliant as a sock bag! Just the right size to carry about too, this has been to work with me the past week on nights too:-)
