WIP Wednesday 13 March

Firstly I would like a apologise if you received an email from me over the last couple of days  which seemed a bit strange, my Hotmail account got hacked and one of the addresses linked to my account used for spam purposes.  This is now deleted and password changed.

Work in progress this week - this is more or less finished just the arms to sew in and the neck band to finish.  It will be going off to its new home tomorrow.  The pattern is an old one - Sirdar Snuggly DK #3308, which gives you the choice to 2 different patterns.  It was knitted in one piece up to the armholes, a 12 row pattern which was fairly easy to remember once you got going. The yarn was from stash.

I'm thinking of making this little dress for my next project.  Its designed by Lois Daykin for Rowan from Baby Knits.  I have some Sublime Cotton Kapok DK in my stash which I think would work well for this dress.  Thinking I might leave off the back pockets though.

I thought I would share the lovely Mothers Day cards I got on Sunday.  The first one was handmade by the youngest, there's a lovely message inside but I'll keep that to myself

This card from the eldest.  She is a fantastic Mum and if I've managed to help her to being that then all the better.


  1. Glad you had a good Mum's Day.
    Such pretty knitting on the lattice work. Where do all these pretty little girl knits end up?
    The dress is so cute. I love the little ruffle on the bottom.

  2. Such a sweet cardigan. Love that dress pattern. Can't wait to see your version.

  3. Oh I love this cardigan, what a lovely pattern! Your cards are great. Love the text of the second ... Have a good week!

  4. The cardigan is lovely!! I really like the cable work - it's giving me ideas for a project of my own!!

  5. The matinee jacket is gorgeous and the colours go so well together. The coloured bands do give the garment a 'lift'. The cable pattern for the skirt of the jacket is very effective.

    Not sure whether I like the back pockets on the dress either. Looks like someone has made a mistake when sewing the dress together.

    Your cards are very special and I am sure that all the words inside and on the front of each are sincerely meant and sent with a great deal of love and respect.
