An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Done in Time
Aha, I can tick 'finish Penny's jersey' off my to-do list. The great thing about working it all in one is that I don't have to sew pieces together. To recap, the yarn is wool that I spun on my Ashford spinningwheel. The pattern is The Incredible, Custom-fit Raglan Sweater by Pamela Costello. It is worked in the round from the neck down, which is unusual, but works perfectly fine. I think one would need some knitting experience to use the pattern, which is more a blueprint for designing a sweater than a pattern as such. Having said that, the blueprint is clear and if you take all the required measurements and follow the steps given, it works well. I thought the sleeve instructions were a bit skimpy, but I guess once you've got that far you can work it out for yourself. I'm pleased with how it turned out. I hope Penny will be too.
