New projects

Since finishing the September challenge (late) I have started on several projects:

A pair of louisa harding fingerless gloves in kimono angora - I have already finished one!

Another cross-over shrug - in black. Started on 9mm needles but it was too big so I have started again on 8mm -only done about 6 rows.

The Wow boa from Simply Knitting issue 9. This has grown really quickly, only a few more cm to go.

I have also made a start on the Rogue Aran Pullover.

Pictures to follow.

Snuggly Bubbly Jacket

One day late and I have finally finished knitting this jacket. It's not quite complete as I still need to buy some buttons. Finished the actual knitting bit yesterday but only completed the sewing up today. I think I prefer having lots of projects on the go rather than having a deadline for one. I can now start on my 'Rogue' aran, just need to find out how to do a temporary cast on. Posted by Picasa

Knitting & Stitching Show at the NEC

I also had a great time at the show, although I did expect to see more knitting stands. I was very good, I only bought 4 lots of wool (and 3 are for scarves) and one length of fabric. I also got a pattern for the new patons moonglow but I will get the yarn from Mrs T when I have finished knitting up some of my stash. The aran has arrived for my Rogue hoody but I am not allowing myself to start it or I will not finish the 'make it month' baby jacket. I have only done the back, one front & half a sleeve of the jacket, so must resist starting anything else, except maybe trying out the colinette. Posted by Picasa

Make it Month - Week 1
After knitting on larger needles for the last few projects, this baby jacket seems to be taking ages to grow. After one week I am only halfway up the back.

I hope the fronts and sleeves grow more quickly or I won't get in finished in a month. :-(
