Happy new year from the UK.
We went shopping with some friends of ours before Christmas and came across a rather fetching waistcoat/tunic affair in a very nice shop. It was knitted in 1x1 rib and straight... By which I mean no hem.
Our friend who tried it on was very disappointed by the fit and I glibly said that I'd knit one for him. So we came home and over tea I got out the tape measure. Our friend has a 'fuller figure' and I'm wondering how to make something fit nicely when the measurement across the back is quite a lot less than the measurement found the front....Any ideas?
I'm posting a couple of pictures as my brother at 46 is expecting his first baby and I, also in my forties, are about to be a very splendid uncle for the first time. So a baby blanket from some lovely hand dyed wool from Pam Murray in Orkney and a cardigan from a lovely book by vibe ulrik Sondergaard called 'lullaby Knits!
Wishing you everything good in 2015
