Hello, I thought i would swing by this soggy saturday morning and show you a few pics of the things i have been knitting, I have cast on a bunch of new things so nothing is really getting my full attention so many many things on the needles.
I can't remember what i have shared and what i haven't so anyway i will just jump right in.
This is my Summer Shrug, i appear to focus on one project for a little bit and make good progress and then kinda abandon it.
So last week it was this shrug.
Its looking really good, now i need to pick up like 278 stitches and knit 2 inches of rib! which is why it has kinda stopped, then the sleeves and its done, really why aren't i working on this??
Next up, this was my focus last weekend, i knit on it quite a bit.
This is a cute pattern, i slowing got the hang of this pattern, then last sunday, i started knitting on it at like 3pm, it got to about 7pm and it started to look a bit funny, a desperate tweet and a email to the twitter and it appeared my pattern was off by one!
But the pattern is such that one stitch had thrown my whole pattern off, i then spend the next 3 hours tinking back, tinkling is like ripping it out stitch by stitch which is why it took 3 hours.
By 10pm i was back where i started at 3pm! I was very grumpy which i normally am on a sunday night, i then stayed up for the next 2 hours to get back to where i was.
This weeks mini focus was my Owl sleeves, i worked the body pretty quick the week before last but this week i was all about the sleeves.
I knit on the way to work, the whole 15min i have in the car, on my lunch and while i wait for rob after work and in the evening, i got a sleeve done a day so that was great.
Dull but great.
I managed to get it joined in the round, so it got to this point and then kinda halted again lol.
Ive been working on a tiny red number which i can't link to coz its a surprise but this is my go to easy project.
I've been knitting on Vics baby blanket too which i have been picking up every now and again but i made quite good progress on last night.
I had this pattern on my queue for ages
I started and finished it one sunny weekend, still not blocked and no button yet but i shall get to that soon.
So this weekend my knitting plans are.
a bit more work on my Owls jumper
pick up the million stitches on my summer shrug
cast on a baby hat
work on the baby blanket.
I also have my lovely friend Jen visiting this weekend so we have lots of hooking fun and today we are off into town for a few bits then back for some scrappy fun and lots and lots of Harry Potter films!
So in other news my friend Becky had her baby this week, i blogged about cute things i was sending her but this is Archie.
He is crazy cute, this is him in a cardi my mam made for him actually cute.
and this is him in the one i made for him.
He is so cute.
Right I'm gonna do a bit of 'tricky' knitting before Jen gets up.
Hope you have a nice weekend all
