>Here’s the finished fair isle yoke sweater:
I think the tension on the yoke might have been slightly off but all in all I’m pleased with it. I just need to put some buttons on the back then it will be finished. As you know the children’s sweaters that I’m making are for charity but I don’t know which one yet. The Big Knit is no longer taking knitted items so I’ll have to send them somewhere else – it might be the one they suggest or it might be another one but they’ll definately be going somewhere.
I’ve decided what my May project will be and I’ve bought the wool for it. Well, actually I’ve cheated and started knitting it. I’m not going to tell you what it is yet though but I’ll show you what I’ve done – it’s a sleeve

I don’t know whether I like it or not and I think I might have made a mistake with my decreases at the top – I ended up with 9 stitches and the pattern said I should have had 14. I’ll know when I make the second sleeve and they don’t match! Anyway, here’s a close up of the stitch pattern:
Talk to you later,
