Laura Jones

Finished Laura’s Jones Cardigan and handed it over last Saturday, only mods I made to the original pattern was the shawl collar, made it a lot bigger, width wise and put the buttons to one side.

Some other yarn that had recently arrived at Ovelha, was the various types of Zauberball by Schoppel. I’ll just leave you with the pictures, I think they speak for themselves.
