Teagan Finished

This is my heavily modified version of Rowan's Teagan.

The original looks like this.
I have modified the pattern, firstly, to make a cropped version, secondly to make it close-fitting and thirdly to change the yarn weight from aran to DK. I used Sirdar Click DK, it was gorgeous to knit with and is lovely and soft to wear. I had originally bought 9 balls of the yarn, but this project used less than 5 so I have plenty left for other things.

I love the colour of the yarn - it makes me feel snug. This is an ideal sweater for the Spring, as it's nice and light but I can still keep warm. The sun may be shining but I still need my winter woollies!

Update on the crocheted pansy doily - I'm getting there - still working on the pansies but it should be finished in the next few days. The cricket World T20 tournament has just started in the West Indies - loads of time in front of the television over the next few weeks is planned!
