Brown Cardy

Image
One is always particularly chuffed when One has managed to knit something that One might wear....

...even if it is only a Brown Cardy.

It looks like an ORDINARY Brown Cardy but really it is a very special Brown Cardy made from baby alpaca wool (Eki Riva 8ply for the rabid knitters amongst you), in the round, the front opening steeked, the collar double knitted - oops - forgive One - that is all for the rabid knitters amongst you.

It FEELS divine against the skin.

And it FOLDS beautifully too don't you think.

Oh and here is a gratuitous cat photo, another no ordinary brown thing.
