Lockdown project – cardigan

It took me 3 months to spin and dye Jazmine’s hair and then another month to knit the cardigan.  I had to resize the pattern and this was difficult and I also worried I would run out of spun and dyed hair.  The cardigan came out beautifully and we had some cold weather so I was able to wear it a few times.  I’m proud of the end result and will always think of Jazmine when I wear it.
