Well I accomplished some knitting over the weekend. We had rainy days for Saturday and Sunday, and yesterday was not much better. I have had my washing on the line for 3 days now. Hopefully, since the sun is out they will dry today. So first up I have a progress pic of my sister's cardigan. This is the sleeve with the back and right front scrunched up on the needle. It is actually a charcoal color, but it seems to come out blue when I take a photo for some reason. I am hoping to do some more on this today.
Secondly we have the cabled hoodie which I started from Baby Cashmerino 2 on the weekend. I have nearly finished the back. It is an easy 4 row pattern and goes quite quickly. The patterns in this book are quite cute, and I can see myself making some more items out of this book in the future.
Next up, I finished the sweater for the Kelly doll. This pattern is from the books Knits for Children and Teddies by Fiona McTague. Isabelle picked out the colors, and I used less than a ball of each of Heirloom 8 Ply cotton for this. I just need to sew on a button or two, and it will be done. It only took 2 nights to complete. The pants will be done next.
And finally, a family picture from Mother's Day. This was taken at my mum's place just before we ate. Lachlan is wearing a jumper that I knit for him last year from Rowan Junior. It actually looks better in real life than in the photo. I did not knit Paul's or Isabelle's cardigans though. I wish the photo had turned out better. I will have to get my sister to take more than one picture next time, so I have a few to choose from. Well I am off to finish my housework, then take Isabelle to kindergarten, and then tonight I am going to dye my mum's hair for her. Have not done it in a while so her few gray hairs are starting to show. Well hope you all have a good day today! Bye for now.
