Been knitting on and off for about 50 years, sporadically trying to crochet, just bought a lucet. More details about my knitting, crochet and tunisian crochet can be seen at https://www.ravelry.com/people/Rosebark for which you need to be a member, but this is free.

Baby Cardigan

For once this one is not for the Special Care Baby Unit but for a friend.  I used a pattern which has a lacy pattern around the bottom, but decided to go with reverse stocking stitch stripes as I have been informed the baby is a boy.  I added this to the sleeves too, although the pattern doesn't have the lacyness on the sleeves, presumably because with the holes in the lacy pattern, little fingers could get caught.  I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out, so have started another identical one (still plenty of this blue yarn left!) for SCBU.

(Notes to self: must phone friend to arrange to meet so I can hand it over! And get on with stuff so I can put more than one item on per month...)
