Quick and easy...

I'm still on a leash - 1 hour of knitting a day!! This is what I have to show for my rationed time

The baby jacket is all knitted - just needs sewing up (no, I will not be blocking this one)

This is me trying to be clever. Since I have rationed time at the moment, I decided to make the best use that I could by starting a new project on size 8mm needles!! This is a pattern by Sirdar that I fell in love with. It's a very simple 3x3 rib - not a lot of effort but quick. I'm on the sleeves and panicking about having enough yarn. I'm using Debbie Bliss Merino chunky in pale blue.

This is Karin's fault. She wafted this under my nose. Like her I'm doing this for my mum (because the Jaeger cardi has well and truly stalled - not sure if it's the colour or the pattern I have a problem with). So far I've ripped it out 4 time - this is not a bobble household!! This is an experiment in progress. I'm using Cotton Cashmere instead of Cashmerino DK. It will be interesting to see how it turns out. By the way. All of the above are from Stash. Haven't I been a good girl??!!

This isn't. More on this later!!

I saw Jill's DB cardigan last night and it looks great, another one on the wish list!

Gosh, I really hope you are on the road to recovery and I am very impressed by how much you are achieving in just one hour. The DB Merino Chunky looks really lovely, so soft and cosy and I love the look of the RYC, seems to positively gleam.

Luckely we now have our very own LYS again.
Hope both our mothers don't read blogs.
I am looking forward seeing Click on you.
You better hold on tight to it, or I'll snuggle with it.
