School Cardies

These are the pictures taken from the beginning of the school year.  They were a bit of a rush job this year.  I knitted one at the beginning of the summer and then one in the last ten days leading up to the start of term.

Phew.  Made it, just in time.

Thank fully the girls, love them.  It’s really nice when your kids appreciate your knitting!

They both have the same one this year and I am hoping they will last a couple of years. Then I can make some different ones…


If you are interested in the pattern, it’s not one of mine I’m afraid.  (Well, some of it is).  It is a pattern from Ravelry, called Gidday, by Georgie Nicolson.  I added a few of my own tweaks, but it’s essentially very similar.  Here is the link:

And, the yarn is one of my all time favourites, Debbie Bliss Railto DK
