Cranfords completed

Dear Annie,

They're finished, hooray! Like you, I did my fair share of unknitting, as well as muttered under-the-breath swearing... but I cracked it in the end. Actually, once I got my head around it, and learnt to only knit when awake and able to concentrate, the pattern didn't feel too tricky. It's certainly a lovely, quick stash-busting knit. I've really enjoyed the Knit Along and I'm impressed that I managed to finish them in twenty days- pretty speedy for me!

I persuaded D to take some photos for me before he left for work- hence the bed-head!

I'm very tempted to keep them as the perfect Autumn warmer but they're destined to be a present for a dear friend who moved away last week.

I'm looking forward to seeing your finished articles.

Love from
