Things that make you go....


Allergy season in - brain out - that's how it feels at the moment. In between the coughing, sneezing and wanting to scratch my eyes out, my beautiful son is flying the flag for this knitting household. I can knit a little at a time at the moment and strictly cotton. More about that in another post.

Shea in full flow.

Pit stop

I have a finished object!!

The tab button top was finished a while ago but I haven't had time to show her off in blog land. In reality, I haven't stopped wearing the cardigan. It's gorgeous. It was quick and easy - mindless stocking stitch yes, but a well constructed design. Just what I needed after 2 projects going wrong.

I found a lovely button at my local yarn shop, a perfect match. (I had help - thanks Karin!!)

It wasn't all stocking stitch!!

I'm juggling too many balls at the moment and my blog is suffering as a result. There has been very little knitting going on - to my sadness...... I did not finish the cable and bobble cardigan on time. I just have the sleeves to do and am half way up one . I had been focusing solely on this project but life has a habit a interrupting good intentions and serious knitting marathons. Just a couple of weeks more of chaos and I'm hoping to be back to normal.
