As mentioned previously, I managed to get lots of knitting done whilst away last week. I took my 3 WIP's and also yarn in case I needed to start another project. I am pleased to report I finished all my WIP's.
The first was my Lady Kina which has been around for a while. I am happy how this turned out and wore it to work yesterday with a black skirt, top and boots. I am so pleased I made this with the 3/4 sleeves. It only took a small amount extra yarn. I used Click Aran with Wool
Next along was the Childry Shawl which I knitted in Zettl Cortina. As this is a 3ply/light fingering yarn it came up slightly smaller than it should, so more a shawlette. It can still be worn around the shoulders and fasten with a shawl pin or worn 'bib style' in the neck of a coat or jacket
Then a couple of jumpers, I won't show until after they have been received but here's a peek
As you can imagine I was pleased to come home free to start the next items on my list. Last night I cast on Baby Eyelet Cardi a simple top down cardigan which I am doing in King Cole Big Value. This is the first in a number of cardigans that I am knitting for a friend who is to become a granny for the second time in February. I have a pile of yarn and patterns to go through and decide what looks OK for a baby which we don't know the gender of.
I have also been asked to knit a Christmas jumper for my youngest, would you believe she wants a Christmas Pudding jumper!!
