Like an addict for a quick fix, I bought a giant ball of wool to knit an aran cardigan but soon gave up. Too much concentration was needed to work on it at the Knit and Natter group especially as there is often more nattering than knitting.
A long while ago my daughter bought me a book, some years ago actually, it is William and Kate's wedding.
Using the Queen and Camilla as models I began but soon realised, as usual, the stash was not going to provide me with enough bodies so I had to buy more yarn!
Then, of course, the colours were not right for the clothes I needed to make. Aha, yes, buy more yarn!
I chose Ricorumi DK 100% cotton partly because it comes in tiny 25gm balls. It's also lovely and firm for the bodies, unlike an acrylic mix I used for one poor lady who might have to endure pipe cleaner insertion.
Hopefully more to show soon
