>Today I decided to have a go at knitting this sweater:
The yarn I’m using is a 4ply crepe which I bought at a charity shop. It has no labels and I wasn’t sure if it was wool or acrylic so I tried the bleach test. After a few minutes the strand of yarn that I’d put in the bleach had just about disintegrated completely so this is obviously wool. I’ll have to remember that when I come to wash it, knowing how good I am at ruining things by washing them on the wrong cycle. I have started washing all my knitted items on the wool cycle now just to be on the safe side so I think it will be alright.
I finished sewing up the child’s charity sweater which I knitted on the Bond:
I’m not sure that I like the way it came out so I don’t think I’ll be using that pattern again. I think I’ll just stick to the pattern out of the basic pattern book – unless I can find a better one in one of the Bond magazines.
Talk to you later,
