|Blue wrap cardi. Patons 12ply Jet|
I have not knitted for years. I started this Patons Jet cardigan last year and completed it this winter. I have always found wool too hot but now not working and spending days at the sewing machine it is just right. I choose this because it style knits up quick and is a relative simple pattern (basket weave) to follow. I had forgotten that I knit loose....and the completed garment is 'oversized' great for wrapping up and watching TV.

I remember my Mum knitting my sister and me mohair jumpers, red and blue mohair jumpers. On the front she pictured knitted a white poodle. I loved that jumper so much and ever since I have had a 'thing' for mohair. So..... I purchased 22 balls of this Cleakheatons blue mohair and knitted this... minus the poodle.
