New 2CVs


I've been knitting my 2CV's again, from my Henrietta 2CV pattern. Making them is a bit compulsive. These are already be on their way to Italy. You might notice that they have no numberplates in some of the photographs, but I am going to add some personalized plates.

Each time I make a car I find it a bit easier than the last. I think somehow with knitting your hands remember the pattern, not your brain. Do any other knitters find this? So although I said before this is not an easy knit, perhaps I was exaggerating a bit, as each time I make one I find the knitting and the sewing up a bit easier.



The burgundy/black car is an attempt at the 2CV Charleston. It took quite a while to find exactly the right shade of wool. 

I have been working on a blue car, which I have just added to my Etsy shop.
 


And here are the cars with their personal numberplates.
