Finally finished the back of mum’s tunic! The shaping is a bit odd as you can see, it’s completely straight then about six rows worth of casting off stitches at the beginning of each row and then…. that’s it!No wonder I was getting bored! The front is a bit more interesting though. It’s split half way up so it’s worked straight for about 14 inches then each side is worked on it’s own. I think that’s about as interesting as it gets, so this might be a long project!
I’ve also added to my queue Na Craga from Alice Starmore’s “Aran Knitting”. This is for my dad, but I’ve yet to find the right wool yarn for it. You can’t have a fisherman’s sweater that’s not made out of wool! And there’s a new addition to the extended family due in September so I’m thinking of knitting some cute baby things too!
