Yarn: Panda Magnum Soft 8 ply
Started: 6th January Finished: 7th January 2009
I knit these up for Isabelle as she always tends to get colder than the rest of the family, having less body fat also helps with that. She actually ended up wearing these to bed last night after I finished them, and gladly popped them back on today for a photo. These gloves should do nicely for the colder weather during school too and using this yarn they can be thrown into the machine to be washed. They dont take long at all to knit up which is great so I can see perhaps another pair being knit up just in case anything happens to these ones.
We have also been busy this week, me with a funny sore neck thing which seems to have just about gone today which is great. I wasnt feeling so good during the week and even made an appointment last night to see the doctor today, but then cancelled this morning after feeling much better. Isabelle has been playing everyday with my neighbour's granddaughter and they have been having so much fun. It is nice to hear them giggling away, although I am not too sure that Lachie appreciated it.
I also finished up the second book to Friday Night Knitting Club and loved it just as much as the first one. I am now going to begin reading All Together Now by Monica McInerney. I read her book Those Faraday Girls last year and absolutely loved it so this is the second novel I am reading. I think I may just start a collection of her novels soon.
I have also been knitting some more on a blanket that I started last year and never finished. Just an acrylic blanket in baby colors (girly ones) so I thought perhaps my friend's granddaughter could use it. I am just doing a few rows a day and will try and photograph it when it is done.
Thank you all too for your lovely comments on the socks. It is my sister's 35th birthday today so I do hope she likes them. Now all I need to do is find a decent man for her to settle down with and we'll both be happy.
