It's a little big but better that way than too small! I loved doing the cabling.

Oh WOW! That is beautiful, what a work of art! I don't have the patience for that but would love to be able to do it. Well done!

Why thank you! :oops: I admire your crocheting - wish I could really get into it but after a teenage overdose of crocheted squares, I can't bring myself to pick up the crochet needle again!

Fantastic - how long did it take? Perhaps more to the point, when did you last have a spare moment when you weren't doing it?
Guinea fowl & a lot of surplus poultry equipment.

Brilliant, well done Kate.

I wondered how long it had taken you too?
What is the name of the spotty stitches under the arms?

I can't remember when I started it now - August I think. As to spare moments, it's usually in the evening when watching television. Or when listening to the radio. I have seemed to do a lot of knitting this year. I did this one in the spring - did I show it you before?

The stitch is blackberry stitch NannyP. You do it by purling three together then knitting three times into the next stitch. Alternate rows are knit.
