Dragonfly Cardigan

Whew!  One handspun garment!

Starting life as a (giant) bundle of fondantfibre's rolags, this little handspun cardigan took quite a while to make!  

All the details are on my ravelry project page; The rolags were british wool, mohair, silk and bamboo - wonderful to spin, and felt very quick & easy.  The pattern was the featherweight cardigan by Hannah Fettig, which is available on ravelry.  

I did get stuck on sleeve island for quite a while, especially whilst beginning my christmas knitting!  Anyhoo, it's now finished, and I'm having a dilemma as to whether or not to add some shiny buttons... 

Perhaps I'll wait a while before embarking on another handspun garment.  Though, being rather teeny myself, I'm probably in quite a good situation when it comes to knitting clothes!

Today at work, a teeny wee old lady declared to her family that 'that nice wee doctor over there is having a baby!'.  I am not, and have no intention of, having a baby.  I may indeed have just eaten several slices of pizza, but I am not with child.  After waiting for the congratulations to die down, I explained this to the wee lady and her family, who were then a mixture of disappointed (on the wee ladies part) and mortified (for the rest of the family). 

Woe is me and my pizza tummy.
