This Cardigan has been on my list for a while (and the sandals are finally in the post would you believe).
Last week I had a solid run of holiday and nothing to do - bad weather, a comfy couch and the TV series on DVD 'The Killing', and my own personal chef - well we did take turns sort of, I did breakfast and he did dinner - yum yum yum.
This is what happened
I reused some yarn bought back in 2002 for a cardie that just never looked good on my or anyone that I tried to give it to.
But I loved the yarn - my favourite as you know in another guise of Tango, Rowan Felted Tweed and I really loved the grey
I did a test to see which colour would go for the stripe - I hope you agree with me on the icy blue I picked, the last one on the right.
I still need to sew in the ends, block and find the perfect buttons - me thinks grey or ice blue
I have started my super duper sock club 2011 socks - but I am sort of stuck at the heel - but really want to meet up with my fellow sock knitters and discuss. I want the thrill of talking about the sock with my fellow super duper sock knitters.......
I am loving the wollmiese sock yarn to knit with - just a tiny bit splitty but otherwise a great knit.
Running update - so far really good
3rd Jan -3.02kms
4th Jan - 3.22km
5th Jan - 3.35km
9th Jan - 7.48kms
Total this week - 17.07kms - wow a bit more than I thought - but the trick is to keep it up when work gets mad as it will in the next two weeks
I am really really tempted to knit another pi shawl with holes and in a really fine lace weight like this one- am I mad....
