My root canal re-do seemed to go well. If you live in London, and need a root canal specialist, I can highly recommend Mr Bhavin Bhuva. He has a special microscope which allows him to find stuff a normal family dentist won't be able to find. It turned out, I had an extra root on the pained molar that my family dentist had missed the first time. It's now just a few hours later, and I feel well enough to share another adventure in home-produced clothing!
|Sirdar Girl's Cardigan 9239, in Denim Ultra Chunky|
This one was meant to be for my 8 year old daughter, but it was so small that it was a perfect fit for my 5 year old daughter! At least some-one can wear it. Though it's not the spec my 5 year old would have chosen, so she wants something in addition. Meanwhile, the oldest is still waiting for a cardigan like this one that actually fits. I was soooo much better off, when I insisted on knitting only for myself!

Sirdar's Ultra Denim Chunky knits up quickly - 10mm needles! It has a little wool and cotton in it, but it is mostly acrylic. This means I can machine wash it in a warm wash. Eminently sensible for kids clothes, but not as luscious as the luxury yarns put out by Rowan or Debbie Bliss, etc.
This was my first Sirdar pattern. It was well written with no mistakes and easy even for a beginner like myself to follow. I'd definitely try them again, especially for casual stuff.
