The Final Lesson: In which Haute Tricot is complete!!
Haute Tricot: from Fitted Knits. Knitted on 5.5 and 4.5mm needles, top down raglan jumper using 4 200g balls of Bendigo Rustic in Green Tweed. Started Sunday, 8th of July and completed Monday 16th of July.
This was my first top down raglan and I would happily knit one again. I love the colour and it is very warm. I modified the neckline to make it deeper and did fewer rows for the neckband than the pattern suggested. I am jolly glad I have finished this jumper as now I have to make 5 cushions with zippered openings and piping by Thursday morning!! I shall have to get the pedal powered sewing machine out!!!!
I expect there might be a better photo of me actually wearing Haute Tricot, but after the 27 terrible pictures I took using the Self Timer on my camera, I bow down to MrsDrWho's expertise and hope she might take another portrait of me soon!!!
So it is with heavy heart I say a fond farewell to Jack Ravel, his woollen scarf and his wife with no name,to their anti-tea, coffee addicted children Robert and Nicole, and to Robert's ambitions of being a great cyclist one day himself.
Au Revoir mes amis et bonne chance!!!
