Comfoy cosy knit cardi!

Thought I would share with you my latest knit, a oh so comfy cosy warm cardi, mind you it was a pain to knit. Quite a few mistakes in the published pattern but still, got it sorted out soon enough.
It;s knitted in a beautiful yarn Artesano aran, which is an alpaca mix, expensive at £8.45 odd a skein, this took me 6 skeins....but compared with M and S a worthy knit, it will get a lot lot of wear. Especially when I go in search of the Northern Lights to Norway early next year....wooohoo!
OH DEARY DEARY ME.......eeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk...I don't generally post piccys of myself on here don't particularly like photos of myself, but think that goes for a lot of people. But decided to be brave for once, its very strange I have just turned 57 and quite honestly its gone so quickly lately, more so since all the children (or adults in training) as my dear friend calls them have flown the nest. Well they've been gone quite a few years now...but anyhow thought why not, stop being so shy. Age is just a number and inside I still feel about 40ish.

Won't bamboozle peps with more Christmas piccys, just my fireplace decs, kept simple but sweet.
