'Joan' Cardigans finished

I have finished knitting the six cardigans I am donating to the Sasha Festival 2014 in memory of Joan Wilson.


I have made three for the girls:


Steel grey


Cranberry


Multi-coloured

Three for the boys:


Chocolate Nepp


Pebble


Denim Nepp


I also finished my KAL Duds for Dudes project which was to knit two matching cardigan/sweaters for the 'twins' Connor and James


I also used Joan's pattern to make these - it is one of my favourites and I have used it a lot in the past.

The colour is 'Gorse Nepp'



James and Connor look very smart in their matching outfits.



They are wearing their matching Jean Jensen boots that she made them last year

  1. The "Joan" cardigans are classic and have a wonderful fit! I particularly like the tweed . The twins look great in theirs, and I do love their JJ boots.

  2. I really like these. I have no Sashas and am not a very advanced knitter, but these look so good, I wonder if I should try. :)

    2. They are all lovely but I especially like the Gorse Nepp yarn and the boys look great in their matching outfits.

  5. The cardigans are very beautiful. I like the tiny buttons. The colors are gorgeous as well.

    1. Yes it is all about the urge...I am like that can only do things when the urge takes me. Fortunately knitting is something I do in the evenings when watching a DVD as I have to keep my arm and hand moving in order to ignore any discomfort so works well.
