I have finally finished the Garter Stitch Jacket!
Pattern: Moda Book 7, Pattern 9
Hat: Pattern 13
Yarn: Baby Velvet and Color 4 Me, 2 balls of
each. This was an easy knit, and would have been much quicker but I had a few things to do in between knitting this and organizing Isabelle's birthday as well. I shall be gifting this to my friend's daughter Hannah for her 1st birthday which is on the 30th of August, so I hope that she likes it. I made the hat to go with it which I think is cute and very easy to make.
I also finished up 2 squares for Samantha and shall now do some green ones for her. I did the one in the dark blue using the basketweave stitch which I really like knitting. I will have to try some new ones in the next few squares. Yesterday's party was nice and relaxing, and we still have a bit of food leftover so no cooking dinner tonight, just heating up leftovers which will be nice and easy. Isabelle and I also made a visit to Stitchery Blue in Williamstown on Saturday, and I bought a new knitting book. It is an Anny Blatt book with some cute kids patterns in it. I also bought some 4 ply Shepherd baby wool for another project which I could not find anywhere else. It was nice and sunny in Williamstown on Saturday, but since Isabelle and I had left Melton at about 2:30 we did not have much time to do much else so we just drove home and finished up the birthday food shopping. I must also say thank you to everyone who wished Isabelle a happy birthday. Very much appreciated. I think next year just the 4 of us will go to the Werribee Zoo and have lunch. I feel a bit tired today after the busy weekend, but now have more time for some knitting. I also just finished the back of the stripey cardigan for me so I am going to try very hard to get it finished before I start the Central Hoodie. I will try and finish off the back of Paul's jumper this week and cast on for the 233 stitches for the collar. What fun that will be. I hope that you all have a nice and relaxing day and much time for knitting.
