Pat - Show & Tell

 Pat has sent a couple of photos of her latest cushion. I recognise this design, and it looks really good as a cushion.



Alison - Show and Tell

As seems typical these days, the jumper I've been knitting went to the recipient the day before the meeting, but this time I remembered to take a photo.

A fairly basic tuck stitch, but with the knit side as the right side. Based on StitchWorld 306, which in the book is pale green, yellow and pink blocks with black/grey dividers up the entire pattern. I had stronger colours, but then it was a bit much... so I did more of the jumper in plain dark green. Thomas had picked his own colours (wanted a green jumper with other colours - but needed persuading that pink chenille possibly wasn't the best thing to include!

I'm pleased with it. It's in 2 strands of 2/30, MT5. The body of the jumper is fine (fine but 'feels' good, which is what I wanted as we move towards spring) but I think with hindsight I could have done with a slightly firmer ribbing at the bottom (cuffs are fine).
