    About

    I had seen this cardi on this site knitted by an awesome knitter and decided I just had to give it a go in the hope that one of the 4 babies due this year was a boy! Last Thursday my gorgeous niece gave birth to a son in Portsmouth UK, so this jacket will be winging it’s way to her next week. The yarn from Bendigo Mills was brilliant to knit with and not at all expensive. I actually ran out of yarn so had to wait for more yarn to arrive from ‘over the border’, before I could finish it off.

      Beautifully knitted, love the yarn and the colour, glad it has found a nice home to go to.
      Some of Bendigo yarn is so soft and lovely to work with.
