Despite health issues at the moment, I havent had time to think. I have been busy with work, reading meters...its almost as though lots of people ar leaving town. Also it is the school holidays, so its that time again to amuse the children when they are bored. I think the holidays get easier as the children get older.
I havent done that much stitching because I have been putting all my spare time into knitting an aran cardigan. Its a nightmare...there is 4 rows of general pattern and into that I have to fit in 16 rows of cable pattern....so there is lots of marking off onto paper, to make sure I know where I am up to. I have only been able to do the knitting when everyone is out or quiet. I have found a couple of small mistakes, but they aren't noticable thank goodness and I havent lost any stitches :) This photo is of the back, and I am getting closer to the armholes, then it becomes quicker. The back up to the armholes is always the uphill part of knitting for me.
The wool is Aran 10 ply - Stormy Ridge Station natural wool. So lovely to knit with. I made a natural coloured jacket a few years ago which I sold as it was too big for me.
This is what I am stitching at the moment. Just a small Irish welcome picture, I have a few ideas how I will finish it. I may change the writing in the middle to black.
I am starting to get itchy fingers for all the various projects I have on the go at the moment. At least I can do my normal stitching when the time isnt right to concentrate on the knitting.
