Cast on: a 60s cardigan
The yarn is a long-discontinued one, Louisa Harding Jasmine, a blend of cotton, bamboo, silk (fancy!) and polyester (the sparkly bit). It's got a lovely soft handle, but holds its shape better than a yarn with a high silk content. Silk can sometimes be a little too drapy.
I haven't done a size adjustment from the largest 40in size as my back and shoulders are pretty narrow – I carry my weight on my front – and I'm not planning to wear it fastened, so the 40in version should be fine. Given how long it takes me to make anything, if I'm wrong about that you'll hear me wail about it some time next July.
I've had a bit of a 60s weekend, all told, watching old episodes of The Avengers and trying on my new jacket. (See the previous post.) I was just in the mood for a bit of optimistic escapism, and 60s spy-fi fitted the bill perfectly. I did watch some Other Avengers, the Marvel sort, in the shape of the 1940s-set Captain America film, which also features Agent Carter, one of my favourite Marvel characters. I'm still miffed her show got cancelled! Anyway, I hope you too had a good one, a weekend packed with all good things.
