Been totally unorganised with being away but finally getting round to posting an update on my projects. Well the February Lady Sweater is finally finished. And here is a picture of it:
This is such a cosy cardigan. I absoloutly love it and I will be making another one in a deep pink or purple when I get a chance. I am hoping to start it in August so I'll have another one for the winter but there are a couple of other projects I might start first!!
And the Teresa blanket is also finished:
This is a small rectangle which would be perfect as a car seat blanket. I know one person who is expecting a baby in a couple of months so if she has a girl this will make a perfect baby gift.
I currently have the plain blue sock as my in my handbag project and the first sock is finished and I am about half way through the leg of the second one. I want to make a few pairs of socks before winter for myself as I've recently discovered that most of my socks have holes in them. And not that I'm a knitter who can actually knit socks I'll be damned if I'm going to buy my socks!!
I am also working on the Stripy Tank Top from the Lucinda Guy book 'And So to Bed'. This is a lovely pattern and I am making it in size 3-4 years for Little 1 in various shades of blue and grey. Knowing my child there is a good chance he will refuse to wear it but I am going to try!!
I am actually quite excited about this tank top (yes, I know I need a life!) because I went shopping in my stash for the yarn for it and was really pleased to find nice colours to use. I couldn't get a decent photo of the colours so will try again once it's finished! In the meantime, here's a picture of it in my bag:
And I think that's all for the knitting. Knit N Natter was cancelled this week as it is the Annual Hebridean Celtic Festival here on the Isle of Lewis. This internationally acclaimed music event means that our little town is heaving with people and so we decided not to do battle with the crowds for our usual table at An Lanntair. It will be good to see them all next week.
Next up is an audiobook post but that will probably take a couple of days to get together!! Until then, keep knitting :o)
