2 blouses done and a cardie for Grace

Today I finished off two of the four blouses I've got cut out for Joanna. They're both New Look 6407, view E.

2 down, 2 to go.

And last night I finished off the cardie for Grace. I managed to get her to stand up to show it off. :o)

Douglas asked me if I was planning to knit garments for dollies to sell in the tartan bee and my answer was a resounding "no!". Although I enjoyed knitting this cardie for Grace, I wouldn't want to do it as a regular thing. I'd much rather sew things than knit them!

    1. Thanks, Chel. The standy-up collar really is nice on these blouses - and easy to sew as well. Thanks for asking about my mum. She's doing much better now. :o)

    1. Thanks, Cheryl. The cardigan was fun to knit - mostly because it was tiny! :o)

  8. I'm the other way around, much prefer knitting, though I wouldn't have a clue where to start with sewing anyway. Love the blouses, they're so pretty.

    1. I do like knitting but, when you compare it to sewing, it's much slower. I suppose it's because you have to make the "fabric" as well as put it together whereas, in sewing, the fabric is already made for you. Or something like that! :oD

  9. Good work!

    At least the thing you're knitting is small, so it doesn't take long to finish. I'm attracted to small projects so far - I've just learned how to knit and don't know how to sew. Yet. ;)
