Good morning lovelies. I hope you are well. I thought I would give you a quick update on the WIP status today. I am behaving myself and keeping the knitting down to ONE yes you heard me, ONE project. And that is Winifred.

After my joys of that other cardigan the other day. I got as far as knitting up one side of the band and decided to rip it back and put it aside for later consideration. I plan to use a smaller needle and see how it goes but at this stage I do not love the way it looks. Anyway, enough said about that. Today is all about Winifred.

Winifred makes me smile. I LOVE this pattern. Whats not to love? Just like Little Winifred the pattern is well written and easy to follow. I am loving that there is also a tally chart to cross off as you work your cable rows. :-)

The Patons Dreamtime is so soft and knits up really nicely, it slides much better over the metallic needles and thankfully this needle is holding out.

Joyful knitting is so much more fun! Have a beautiful day everyone. After a full day of cleaning yesterday I am off to spend some quality knitting time with my mum. :-)

Love and hugs to all xoxox


  1. That is a lovely summer color. I had considered this pattern for my niece but bought a different one instead. I will make this pattern my next go to. Glad you're having no troubles.

    1. Its a great pattern. The adult version has lee way for shaping and length etc too. Lots of suggestions on how to do it etc. Both child and adult versions are for either a tunic, short cardigan or long cardigan too. So a good buy.

  2. I'm glad your enjoying this pattern,
    It looks lovely, now that I can knit socks cables are next on my knitting list to try :)
    I love a easy well written pattern,

    1. Me too. :-) If you have mastered socks I think you will find cables pretty easy.
