Loving Linney

As part of my 12 in 12 endeavour I decided to make a jersey for my bestest friend who lives in the UK. We've known each other since high school and because we live so far away from each other I've missed out on buying her lots of birthday and Christmas pressies. Hence the jersey. I sent her a few patterns and she chose this ....


It's called the Linney Cardigan and it's by Amy Christoffers who is a favourite designer of mine. She wanted dark blue but the closest I could find in an Aran weight was a smokey blue/grey. Not much choice in Aran with a climate like ours!

I started the cardi back in April and knitted the whole thing before I realised it was going to be waaaay too long for my friend who is very small and petite. The sleeves were fine but I had to frog the back and front and redo them. Hey ho ... my fault for not checking halfway through....

Eventually though I finished it again, sewed it together and found suitable buttons. Here it is ...







You can find it here on my Ravelry page.
I'm really hoping she'll like it ....
Til soon.
