The daffodils are bravely putting forth in the driveway and garden. I have pots of sunshine in the house, purchased last weekend but still looking good, they do help to brighten the day and make me smile
Now on to knitting......
The Frilled dress has stalled. I was very good, did a tension swatch, cast on for the 9-12 months size, knitted away, decided to check measurements only to find I was knitting up far to big. A bit of adjustment, I am now making 18-24 month size but of the 9-12 numbers! Frustrating, but now cast to one side, to be returned to at some point.
So that I would have something simple to knit whilst at knitting group yesterday, I cast on the matching Ten Stitch for Laurie - here is the one I did for Rufus - I have plenty of time for knitting this as he is still in a cot and will be for sometime. Its good to have something mindless to knit, I think I could knit this in my sleep now, this is my ninth one!
A while back I told you about the work we are doing with Jack CECUP School, Lusaka. Our ladies are busy making quilts, making up information packs on knitting and sewing, patterns etc. We are collecting sewing machines and all manner of equipment, thanks to everyone who has contributed thus far. As I'm not much of a quilter so I decided that I would put together a pack of knitted items which they can either use or sell, so this is one of the items I am currently knitting. A simple raglan sleeved sweater, one I've done a few times. Knitted in acrylic for hard wear and easy wash. I have sorted a large bag of stash and will just keep knitting until its all gone.
I should now get off of the computer and get on with some housework. Never a dull moment, housework, don't you just hate it?
