Gifted Gorgeousness - July

Gifted Gorgeousness is the brainchild of Jo (Serendipitous Stitching) and if you are not familiar with this monthly blog post, you can read all about it here.

This month I start with a belated 'Thank You' to Julie of Julie's Stitchyknitter Journal. Julie had offered this Silver wedding anniversary pattern on her blog and I received it in late May. I have a family Silver anniversary next year and this design will be perfect. Thank you, Julie.

After a wet June, summer is definitely here! It's very hot and we've had some thunderstorms. It's probably not the best weather for knitting but that is my current gifted gorgeousness project. I am knitting a duck egg coloured long cardigan for my mother (photo below). I've completed the back and the front left side is almost finished. Finishing this will keep me busy for a few weeks.

Until next time, I hope that everyone enjoys pleasant weather.


  1. That will be such a lovely gift for your mother, Mary--the yarn color is fabulous!!

  2. A great cardigan pattern, mum will be nice and cosy in the winter wearing it.

  3. Thanks for taking part in GG in July. I am glad that Julie found a good home for the chart, looking forward to seeing you stitch that.
    Nice work on the cardigan too.


Thank you for reading and leaving a comment.

It is lovely to hear what you think.
