What Elaine knit next!
I recently joined a group of volunteers who meet at the Black Country Living Museum, knitting and sewing clothes and accessories to support the museum’s costume department.
Having finished my grey cardigan in super-quick time, I was perfectly placed to cast on a new project, so put up my hand to volunteer to make a 1940s-style cardigan. The costume department provided the pattern (Belinda by Patons Australia) and the yarn (Cygnet Aran in colourway 309 Earth Brown) and I’m making good progress using 6.5 mm needles.
With the current cold spell (we had snow again this morning), I feel inspired to complete this cardigan quickly to help keep one of the museum re-enactors warm! Let’s see how it goes …
Have you cast on a new project this week? I’d love to hear all about it!
