I have a finish to share,
The bright jumper, I made both the body and sleeves longer than the pattern as this is a winter top. I am not over impressed with the 2:1 rib, it seems to stand proud of the stocking stitch, it may relax after washing and blocking. It is impressively warm and fits well, I wanted about 3" of negative ease as this will be worn under a coat. There is nothing worse than putting a coat on and finding that the jumper is too baggy, with a dog bouncing around ready to go out NOW.
My arms are quite long and these sleeves are perfect.
I had some lovely post this morning, this lovely sock yarn from Little French Meadow.
I had to chuckle at the name.
I opened the skein so that you can see the colours. I am going to knit a pair of Hermione socks with it.
These lovely little stork scissors were in the packet along with a cute sunflower charm.
Not forgetting a tea bag, I look forward to trying this later.
My parcel was wrapped in lilac tissue paper and tied with matching ribbon complete with progress marker, a cute little tennis playing bunny.
I have my yarn ready to wind into a cake and hope to get it cast on soon.
I am in dire need of tea so will catch you tomorrow with some more sewing, and maybe a little knitting.
PS. I did have tea at knit and Natter and a huge slice of chocolate cake, one of our group had a birthday and her lovely hubby popped in with cake and plates and forks. SWOON.
