And here's Grandpa, looking nowhere near 90, with my sister and Cath. We're all very proud of him (he goes travelling all by himself and his favourite drink is Sambucca).
Here's my dad (aka the Somellier) and James, looking thoughtful. It was rather late by then!
Pattern: Sirdar Leaflet - can't remember the number!
Yarn: The recommended Town and Country DK, Acrylic and wool
Time to knit: Two weeks
I'm not sure this is a good photo, the mock cables aren't too clear. I liked this pattern, easy with enough interest not to die of boredom. I did modify it to make it wider, and it could have been even bigger. The original pattern only has the cable at one end, I carried it all the way through. And this my favourite acrylic, nothing wrong with it at all and not squeaky. The whole thing cost me about £4! And best of all, he really appreciated having something made for him!
