RED CANADIAN GUERNSEY.
Carolyn was Canadian, but moved to the lake district, where she became an expert knitter and spinner and co-founded Woolfest. She died before she managed to finish this wonderfully tough, hand spun man's guernsey. Felix has dared to take it on. I say dared, because the main body is knitted on circular needles right up to the shoulders in the traditional way. The shoulders are then knitted together, and Felix will have to CUT down the armholes to let the sleeve in. This jumper is hardcore. The wool is tight and so are the stitches. Felix is always up for a challenge and we look forward to hearing how she gets on.
