So the March "make" was completed with a few days to spare - and I'm really pleased with it. I wanted to see if I could concentrate to follow a pattern (turns out I'm not a natural..) but after a zillion false starts, I got into the swing of it. I doubt I'll make another one - I prefer less fussy patterns though I loved the colours of the yarn (Crofter). That said, it's a sweet wee cardi for a toddler and I'm now on the hunt for a dress/leggings or tights for underneath. The girl is due to arrive in a week or so.
Pattern reading is a whole new kettle of ball games and I'm more of a 'wing it' girl so I really struggled with this - though I am pleased to have found new depths of persistence on the journey!
