WIP Wednesday

Four WIP's this week, well actually 3 still on the needles as this project just needs sewing up

First - this cardigan is the Little Margot Wrap by Sublime knitted in some unknown yarn which I recently obtained.  It is actually much pinker than it shows here.  I love the detailing on the hem and sleeves which was very simple to do. Its finished with a ribbon tie.

The next is Candy Stripe by Sublime, again an assortment of odds and ends from stash.  Its a cropped style cardigan with a tie front.  Both these cardigans are for a little lady, Charlotte, who came into the world on Saturday evening, a daughter for Katie & Ashley and a second grand-daughter for Judy & Stephen - congratulations to you all.

The next project is a ten stitch but this time with square corners.  Pauline of Paulineknit kindly gave me the instructions.  Whilst its quicker to knit I think I prefer the mitered corners.  Again I am panicking re the colour change but it usually works out and I'm happy with it once I'm about 2/3rd round

And the 4th project is the Baktus Scarf which hasn't seen the light of day since last week.

You may be pleased to know that on Saturday I spent a pleasurable few hours teaching Rachel's friend Gemma to knit, to say she took to like a duck to water was an understatement.  By the time they left she had cast on, garter stitch, stocking stitch and 2 x 2 rib and cast off under her belt. Reports are that after a few glasses of wine on Saturday evening things went a bit array, but that she is endeavoring to keep at it.  Her goal for now is to complete some the simple slippers pack which she was given as a joke Christmas present. I think the joke will be on them. Go Gemma!!

In other news Laurie has cut his first tooth, and the garden tidy is going slowly.......


  1. It's probably a good thing that you started the second blanket so soon after the first, if it were me I would probably drag my feet with starting another. You have really gotten a hang of your new lens! It really brings out the texture of your knits! It's always fun to hear about what you've been up to!

  2. Those sweaters will be adorable! Enjoy the knitting.

  3. OHHH so many projects AND they all look great!

  4. You are busy as usual, with some beautiful projects on the move. I too prefer the mitred corners on the ten-stitch as they look more 'classy' but the square corners make a change. Thank you for the link.

    Glad you are passing on the skills. Knitting is a skill never to be lost!

    Hoping Laurie is nor finding teething too painful.
