I'm still knitting my Mr Greenjeans top-down. I just cast off the bottom this morning and am about to put the sleeve stitches onto some needles ready to do them.

I'm a bit surprised at how big it seems. Maybe when the sleeves are done it will have more structure.

I was getting on really well with my Mr Greenjeans, but got sidetracked when I decided I wanted a shawl to take away with me next month. I'll be picking it back up when I've finished the shawl and gloves. My knitting group are looking forward to seeing it finished!

The finished cardi modelled by my lovely daughter. My mum loved it so I just need to put the buttons on and she can have it

That is a great sweater...and your daughter knew just how to "show it off". She looks a lovely girl. Your mum should be quite pleased.

LillyBee....what pattern is that? I love it. It would save me from rolling or pushing up my sleeves. I really do not like anything on my wrists.

Your daughter is lovely.

I enjoy it so much when we are able to see our items modeled. Very Happy

I don't think me and the February Lady get along Confused

The first cardi was two sizes too small. I have finished the body and one sleeve on my second, but, I picked up the sleeve stitches on the inside on the cardi grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I finished the sleeve, tried it on for length and couldn't figure out why the sleeve was right way out but cardi was inside out. Having to rip it back and redo. At least I only did one like that.
