Design from Sirdar Nursery Knits
The first project is one I started for myself this week. I really love how it is knitting up in the denim blue colorway. Hopefully I can get some more done today after I finish the last sleeve of a test knit for Tikki. I am hoping tomorrow will be sunny so I can block it out and take some nice pictures of Isabelle in it.
The second project is a little scarf project I started a few weeks ago. I completed one repeat of the pattern and I dont know if I really love it or not, but thought I should continue to see how it blocks out. If I dont like it then I can just gift it to my sister as she loves scarves. I am sure she has a large collection of them by now.
The third project is a cardigan for Isabelle out of Sirdar Supersoft Aran. It is lovely and squishy and the pattern is only a 4 row repeat which is super easy to remember so it knits up quite quickly. I have also finished half of the front too.
The last little project is a little cardigan for Eden from Sirdar Nursery Knits book. I found this yarn in my stash and thought it was perfect for her. I saw her yesterday wearing one of my handknits and thought she had grown a bit so time for a new one. Her big sister Enya's birthday is next week too so I am hoping to knit her one the same in a different color. I only started it yesterday so I got a little bit done.
Now since I have all these projects I really need to learn how to add those sidebar projects toolbar so I can keep tabs on them all, otherwise some will end up in the basket never to see daylight again. I have to say I emptied out all of my old projects and either gave the yarn away or the project so I didnt have any waiting to be finished. It felt good to start with a clean slate.
I am having my mum, my friend and my sister over today for a knitting group (but my sister will be quilting) so it should be nice and cosy with cups of tea and the odd milo, and a few chocolate biscuits. I hope to get some knitting accomplished but I am sure I will be doing more talking instead. Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I am happy because Paul will be back tomorrow after 2 weeks being away for work!
