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!!
