It’s finally sewn up.
As you may have guessed, I didn’t do much sewing up on Frappe while I was enslaved I mean staying with Carol last week.
The rest of the sewing went without incident once I sat down and did it.
So here she is finished…
I think she looks rather smart. A bit big maybe? I made the smallest size – I’m telling myself I’ll be wearing more when it’s cold enough to need a cardi 😉
You think I could wear it for the “Not Totally Formal” days at work??
BTW check out the eye protection – I’d like to blame Carol for burning my retinas with her evil acrylic but the truth is, I’m needing my glasses more and more – I forgot I had them on for the photo shoot – old age! Arrrhhhg! 😯
Want to see the back? I’m not sure about the joining in the collar at the centre back – I think I should have grafted it somehow – it’s a bit stiff and pointy…
Whilst in Cardiff, Carol took me to Claire Grove Buttons – a treasure trove of all thing buttony. After about an hour of running around the shop saying, “Oh have you seen this one” to each other, Carol and I decided on these buttons for Frappe…
I thought they picked up the pattern in the knitting perfectly.
