Lucy had her first outing today, so we grabbed a quick snap before dashing off to the garden centre.

Sorry for the picture quality at the moment.  My little camera has been in the wars and it shows.  One of these days I’ll have a digital SLR, but the garden needs landscaping first!

Anyway, back to Lucy.  As you know the pattern is by cosmicpluto knits and is knitting in Phildar Oxygene in Flanelle that was in my stash.

I really like this pattern.  If I’d had a little more yarn I would have added a couple of inches to the length as I’m taller than the average bear at 5 ft 8, and I like to wear my knits a weeny bit longer.  But as it was I only just managed to eke the cardigan as it is out of the yarn that I had.

And whilst there are a bajillion other patterns I’m itching to knit, this is one that I can see myself coming back to as it’s a great basic shape.  It also lends itself to playing around with other stitch patterns…maybe a cable or two or a bit of a lacy panel.  Who knows?  I’ve got socks to finish first!
