A Tipsy New Year!



So here she is in all her glory - forgive the idiot picture of the person wearing it (I was so excited to be wearing this much cashmere at long last that the silly grin stayed on my face all evening!). Of course, ever the one to offer up compliments, my husband said 'hmm, you need to wear something underneath it'. And that was his only response. Someone tell him will you? He just doesn't understand!

And yes I did get a bit Tipsy in her - celebrating don't you know. Not celebrating the New Year, but the fact that finally I have a finished project!

I have loved knitting this, and as I told Dee, I think it should be in the New Laws Of Knitting that everyone should make one of these. Posh Yarn Sophia 4 ply is quite the very nicest yarn to knit and wear ever in the history of yarn (and I have loads left - really loads!). Is anyone else out there tempted to have a go? It was such a fun thing to knit - go on, experiment with your colours (there were plenty over in the Posh sale, but my stupid computer decided to work only when the sale was all sold out).

I will post another day about my New Year's Resolutions - already broken one of them, but hey, isn't that what they're there for?

Happy New Year one and all.

Tipsy looks gorgeous and so do you! What does your old man know? Did you have a vest on? What are you going to do with your left overs? You were a brave lady to start this but the end result is so beautiful! Happy New Year to you! Are you going to Kerrie's on Saturday?

Wow ! Tipsy is fantastic. Really looks fab on you.
Wear something under cashmere ?! Philistine ! It's not even as if it's low cut.

Wow, that's one pretty impressive cardy! I don't think I'd have the patience to even attempt it.
Well done you.
Happy New Year.

De-lurking to say how lovely that is. As for the husband - meh. What does he know? You look great. Well done.

Hi Michaela,

Your Tipsy look is smashing .... and the cardi - arf,arf!

Oooh, I tell you, if any of us knittists meet your hubby in a dark alley we'd show him! (.... not sure quite what we'd do with him yet but it would definitely involve knitting needles ....) (SAS or no SAS ;)

Have a fab time breaking your New Years resolutions

:)

wow Michaela, tipsy is wonderful - you have every right to be wearing it with a big smile on your face. Husbands don't get knitting - they lack the required genes! Happy new year x
