Started: end of April, finished 16 May 2008
I knit this for Isabelle to wear with a dress when the nights get cooler, or over a pair of jeans with a long sleeved top. I love the cables in it, and the Sirdar Tiny Tots yarn is a fave of mine. I think I started this at the end of April, and it seems I forgot to mark down the actual date. I did finish it up late last night so I am glad another project is done.
I also joined in the #3 swap on ravelry for aussie knitters. I just got my swap partner's details today so I cant wait to get started. It is going to be so much fun. I joined in the dishcloth swap last year which was really nice too, and it is always nice to receive a little surprise in the mail.
I have also started knitting a jumper for my dad out of some of the yarn that he purchased at Bendigo. I feel as though I am knitting it forever and I am only halfway up the back. My dad is one of those with a beer belly so it makes everything a bit larger. I also started a cable sweater for Isabelle too out of some Smoothie DK, mid grey color, which looks lovely so far. I figured since she always gets so dirty I would knit something in a darker color for her. It is looking good so far and I will make sure I take a photo during the week when it is hopefully a bit brighter. We have had 25mm of rain this weekend so far so it hasnt been the best to take photos in. I also ordered some other Smoothie DK yarn in other colors, teal, cornflower blue, cream, pink, red and coral. I do have plans for it all and it looks so nice sitting there. I also popped over to the Wool Shack during the week as they were clearing yarns to make way for some new ones. I got some DB cotton at $3.95 a ball I think. I also have some lovely sock yarn winging its way to my house from Yarnomat. Great service so it should arrive in the next day or so. Once I get it I will have to show you all, and then I will need to knit a lot during this really cold weather so we have some warmer clothes to wrap ourselves up in and the stash is a tiny bit smaller.
Oh thank you all too for the lovely comments you left me on the last few posts. Time seems to just disappear at the moment and I cannot believe it is nearly half the year over already. Sad isnt it. Well I better get back to some knitting before preparing dinner. Have a great day!
