Good afternoon to you from a dull, drizzly, misty Cambridgeshire. Its one of those afternoons when you want to just curl up with your knitting or a good book, cup of tea and maybe some cake!
My WIPs this week are the Lady Kina, which is coming on well. I decided to add three quarter sleeves as I'm not a fan of cap sleeves. I knitted 40 rows in stocking stitch and 10 rows in garter stitch, much more me. This is the first top down that I have done for myself and I'm loving the fact that I can try on as I go, it takes the guess work out of the finished length. The only draw back is the weight of the needles/cable
Secondly is a cardigan for a colleague of Rachel's baby daughter due soon - its a Sublime pattern, Peach Sorbet - I'm calling it Shocking in Pink, its knitted in Kirkton House Craft Double Knitting yarn, cheap and cheerful ideal for a busy new mum. Just the sewing up to do
I am feeling odd today due to a crack on the head last evening. Let say heads, reading glasses and oak trunk lids don't agree. I have a lump on my head, split on my nose, spinning head and a headache - I'm hoping not concussion.
