Enjoying My Knitting

Last few days I have been enjoying my time knitting. I have a nasty virus that has gone through our home, so knitting has kept me occupied.

No gardening and not a lot of house work over the last few days.

Finished another beanie for my stall. I'll take a photo of it tomorrow and post it.

Started a scarf for myself and knocked another ball over with Amy's scarf.

Posted off my swap for Woolaholics.

Best thing about having 6 WIP, I can knit how I feel at the time. mrgreen

Have you noticed a new poll on the right of your screen??? If you have a couple of seconds, please feel free to let me and my readers know.....what knitting you tend to do more of. Thanks.

Until next time....hoo roo

Fairy Floss

As its now spring and not a lot of cold times left for wearing jumpers, I have decided not to push for the finish of Pat's jumper. As long as it's finished by the start of Autumn, new for next winter. Pat can wear the countless jumpers I have already knitted for him, until then.

So today I cleaned out my Knitting Box and picked out a couple of new projects.

This little baby set is called Fairy Floss. I have scanned the photo from my knitting book, so you have an idea of what I want to knit. It's going to be knitted in a cream 4 ply wool, Patons Dreamtime.

Also I have started another beanie for my stall. This baby outfit will also go towards my stall, unless its sold or needed before hand.

Finished my Woolaholic "Something New" swap last night. All wrapped and ready for the post on Monday. Very proud of my effort and can't wait to be able to show you the end result, after my swapper has received it.

I have a cold that my family has shared round, so I'll have plenty of time for knitting. As I haven't much energy for anything else.

Until next time....hoo roo

After making a heap of mistakes in my "Something New" swap on Sunday...think it was frogged 4 times. eek Said to Pat I need to do something easy and less stressful.

So I knitted a ladies beanie for my stall.

Started it yesterday afternoon and had it all sown up last night. Sure felt good for doing something so easy. Amy had a boo-peep at it and said, "I could wear this". Made me feel even better.

Knitted in "Yarn Bee" Seasoned Spice #075.

On the way to bed last night I walked into a door and my left arm is sore and swollen today. Aching like hell and taking pain killers, every 4 hours. Really hope it doesn't slow the knitting down. confused As time is drawing to a close for this swap.

Until next time....hoo roo
