For the last few weeks I have been rummaging in corners and making piles for recycling, charity and to keep. I’m sure the lady at the local hospice donation centre thinks oh no not her again! It’s difficult to judge, after all one man’s rubbish can be another man’s treasure 🤔
I have also dug up a whole host of unfinished projects🤪 Me being me the knitting part is complete but no attempt has been made to start finishing and sewing up😥
I have sewn the following up, all found in a Christmas bag 😇
Quite a sense of achievement but sadly I think I will find more…
The weather has been glorious today. After mowing the lawn and pulling up some troublesome stinging nettles I have enjoyed an hour’s al fresco knitting. All that vitamin D should help my immunity 😄
I have been working on the first sleeve of my nephew’s cable aran.
Please ignore the dying primula in the background. The warm weather has taken me a bit by surprise and I haven’t really got into a watering routine yet😕
So back to the sleeve. Another 20 rows to go on the increase sequence and then once it is the desired length I will start on the raglan shaping. He’s not going to get it for chilly spring days but he does live in Scotland and there is generally a chill all year round 😆
Do you remember me sharing photos on the progress of the pink Guernsey jersey?
Well I have finally finished it 🤗
It’s a Debbie Bliss pattern that I found in Prima magazine a few years ago. I have made it in brown before but I am much happier with this attempt. The yarn came from Aldi so cheap and cheerful. Next time I make it I will have the confidence to splash out on a more expensive yarn.
