Knitting - All the nice girls love a sailor

This week is Woolly Hat Week, a fundraiser for Sailors Society.  You can make a donation or raid your stash and knit a hat, there's even free patterns to help you along.  I decided that a hat was the perfect thing to start knitting when I go to my Tuesday group this afternoon, especially as my current WIP is getting a bit unwieldy.  I'm making a yoke cardigan, and am at the point where I need to bring it all together and start the yoke. I don't have any photos as yet but will share when I am done.

Talking of done, here is my latest project off the needles. This is for Jess who starts nursery on Wednesday when her mummy goes back to work.  Can you believe she is nearly 1 year old.

Pattern - Lucy from Patons Nursery Days, I think this must be the 5th time I've used this pattern, its a classic with two neckline options

Yarn - Sirdar Denim Tweed DK - an acrylic and cotton mix

I have been doing other knitting, but as yet, I cannot share with you.


  1. Where has that year gone. Our little Jack is also 1 in a couple of weeks, can't believe it!
    Hope your grand daughter enjoys her first day at nursery!

  2. Jess will look lovely for nursery. Best wishes for R.

  3. That's a terrific sweater! Jess will be the best dressed girl at her nursery, thanks to her knitting Granny. And yes, it's hard to believe she's almost a year old.

  4. That little jumper is just SUPER cute :)
