skeletal forms; amazingly beautiful, creative knitting I’ve been trying to de-construct since I saw it; sexy crafty model (creator of the shocker mittens) – just go look
and Becky – the yarn is probably from Jamiesons of Shetland (they’re called something like that anyway). I inherited it from my grandfather without tags or anything but it’s defintely that sort of wool. And they do an amazing colour pallette.
The felting worked. Well it worked and it didn’t work. I didn’t get the result I was trying to get, the leaves just kind of vanished. But I did get a hat I love, the shape and size are perfect. I’m calling it a success. Pics tomorrow I guess. Seems a bit daft to take them at 1.30 am.
The Wardie cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up. When the front and back are complete they're joined at the shoulders and then the sleeves are worked from stitches picked up around the armhole.
If you're interested in knitting Wardie but aren't sure about the finishing here's how the shoulders and sleeve go together.
