On the needles: The scarf I started from last week, is growing steadily and I think it is looking rather nice. Jas' likes it which is great since she will be wearing it at the end of the day ;-D
I have started a hoodie pattern for Kay. Now, I haven't really followed a complex cable pattern until now, and this does look pretty complex, but I am guessing once I have started it won't be all too bad!
Finished hubby's jersey - at last!!! Will post it on Friday. He has since been wearing it, and told me it is really comfy - Whew, the last time I knit a mans' sweater it turned out to be something Quasimodo could wear - no joke!
Like I told you last week, I joined up for a KAL this month, and am not having the smoothest of starts. I am hoping that my wool for the project (which was supposed to arrive by Tuesday last week) will eventually get here this morning so I can try to catch up and make the deadline!
Wool arrived - thank goodness! Now I can knit like a madwoman to catch up.
Do all of you out there make swatches? I have yet to make one, I know the importance of making one and the benefits of having a piece of clothing that fits afterwards, but I still have just winged it with jerseys and cardies until now.
On my Ereader: Egypt - The Book of Chaos by Nick Drake.
Haven't really started it yet, finished Mockingjay on the weekend, so I guess just taking a breather. At the end of it all I loved The Hunger Games Trilogy. I got the books on special for hubby to read as our library only had the Hunger Games and he was then getting really edgy not being able to continue, so I passed Book 1 onto Jas who devoured it in two days!! Now she is competing with hubby to see who will get to book 3 first!
Anyway, haven't blogged since last week, so it has been great getting some finger practice :-D. Hope to see you tomorrow at Kitchen Krafts for the beginning of my Nature Series.
I will be sharing my post today with all the wonderfully talented folk over at:
