In Skipton I bought a couple of balls of wool for £1 each. They were brightly coloured and my eye was drawn to them. I had a pattern in mind. A little summery waistcoat for a little girl. I started it on WEDNESDAY and finished it last night. It's unheard of! It's also such a quick straight pattern.
It was completed at about 11.30pm last night! I needed to finish it because it's for the daughter of a friend we are seeing tomorrow. The HG and I are off to the Midlands for the weekend, something I've been looking forward to for ages. Today we are off to Kennilworth castle and then tomorrow the biggie- The Black Country Museum. I have wanted to go there for ages. I've been to Beamish a few times and loved it. I've seen the BCM on telly and it looks great.
Anyway Ta dahhhhhh
My friend has two girls but I need to check which size to knit the other one. So extra presents will be bought in case one is distraught at not receiving her knitted gift from me!
I hope they like it! And it's not " Oh how lovely, you really shouldn't have!" said in *that* voice which means no, you REALLY shouldn't have.
Right, going to get a move on and check I've got everything!
Oops forgot the photos of Barnard Castle ...
