Hetty and Agatha

27 Aug

Oooo, a new pattern from Andi Satterlund!! Hetty looks totally amazing. It’s my birthday next month and I already had two of Andi’s patterns on my list along with the wool to knit them and now Hetty might make it to the top of my list.

Scratch that, Hetty has made it to the top of my list. I think it’s my favourite pattern of hers yet.

Anyway, enough swooning. Agatha is another one of Andi’s patterns and the first one I started knitting (remember how I knit a bit of one thing and then one of another so believe me when I say I have other Andi patterns underway 😉 )

It was a pain in the backside at first, this being the first garment I’ve ever knitted,  but it was complete user error and not Andi’s pattern-writing at all. But once I got the hang of things I was all over this and I’m halfway through a second already!

I have to apologise for the photos, Mark is away working and decided he absolutely needed all of the memory cards so I’ve had to use my phone 😦

There’s definite mistakes in it, things I didn’t realise until several rows later and was too lazy to frog and reknit. However, I feel confident that the next one is going to be better so this purple version was just a very drawn out muslin :p

This is how I blocked the thing:

Not conventional by any means but actually I’m not sure why?! Perhaps people care about their carpets…

I started out with boards and plastic bags, blah, blah, blah… This was much much easier. My board was too small to do the whole cardigan so I had to do it in halves which was quite frankly, rubbish. My carpet is considerably larger than my cardigan and the pins stay in nicely which makes for a perfect blocking tool. I stuffed the arms with plastic bags as well to open up the detail on the arm a bit more, I spritzed and steamed the thing and then left it overnight.

Now to choose a colour for my inevitable Hetty project. Oh wait, I did just do a post about all my WIPs

but Hetty….! ❤

    I’m eying up those patterns for my next knitted project too! Love her whole collection. Great job with this one, and the colour is perfect for the coming colder months 😀
