Finishes Friday #1

One of my aims for this year was to blog more and to help with this I am going to have more structure on my blog.  Every Friday I am going to post about any finishes I have.  Because it is only January the 2nd and I don't have any finished yet, for my first post I thought I would post the projects I finished as gifts for Christmas.  I made two gifts for Christmas.  The first was a latch hook rug.  This was the first time I had ever tried latch hook and I enjoyed it.  I wouldn't want to do it all the time as it is a little monotonous but I loved the effect ...














The next finish I have is my first ever larger knitting project.  I made a cardigan for my mother, I got the pattern from Ravelry.  It is called Driven by Veera Valimaki.  I found it a really positive experience, it's not perfect but I learnt so much from the experience and my mum loved it.  It fitted really well ...







I apologise for the photo quality so here is a picture of the cardigan on the model ...



I would really recommend this pattern, the yoke was a little confusing but the rest of the pattern was really well written and any trouble I had was fixed by going on the designers group on Ravelry as she had everything written clearly on there.

Happy Stitching Everybody !!!!!!
