I knitted a cardigan!

OMG. I finished it! I started this cardigan last April and it’s taken me this long to finish it. I took advantage of my week off work over the Christmas period to get my head down and get knitting! This is the Wool and the Gang Vivienne cardigan which I bought as a kit (pattern […]
