This little number however took less than two weeks if I recall correctly! Big needles + chunky wool = one happy Tupney (a Tickety boo Tupney). Hurrah to big knits!
Boxing Day saw the commencement of this knit- a joyous day indeed…. And looking back in my diary (yes I keep my knitting movements recorded- the only thing I have to put in my diary!) I can tell you that on…
Friday1st: I had finished the first sleeve, started other- went to grannies, ate cake, and set my hair!
Sunday 2nd: Finished second sleeve and started collar (no cake!)
Monday 3rd : Knitted collar. Sewn up sides, shoulders and part of sleeves….
Skip a few days to the 5th, and that’s the day I finished it completely… so that looks to be nine days of knitting, and 1 extra day for sewing up! Would have been less days of knitting if only I didn’t have to re-knit a front….
