Still here

I have been so busy chasing my own tail !! This is what happens when you start too many projects at one time and have a crisis about how much stash you have bulging out of places it has no business bulging from.

Knitting Progress
A finished (finally) object

Pattern: adapted from the zipped Jacket with hood

Pattern by: Debbie Bliss

Source: Cotton knits for all seasons

Yarn used: Tivoli Santos aran (100% cotton)

Started: February 14/2007 Finished: April 10 2007
Comments: The pattern had a few errors in it which were easily correctable. I did not knit the hood, but made a fold down collar in moss stitch instead. The cables on the jacket knitted right next to the moss stitch looks brilliant!!

St Brigid

St Brigid is on a little bit of a back burner. I promised my mum I would knit a cardigan for her friend and she needs it in 2 weeks!! We like to keep on our toes. The pattern is an old friend so hopefully she will have it on time - this is what happens when your mum actually wears the things knitted for her!!

It's the Ribbed Cardigan by Debbie Bliss, from her Cashmerino DK book.

Oh no, another round of bobbles for you. I remember how glad I was to get the last one done. But then again it is a beautyful cardie.
