The back of the SO,s cardigan is done and I am well on the way to finishing the sleeves. The pattern is formed with bands of stocking stitch, garter stitch with some moss stitch in panels.
It is far better in the flesh than on the photo, the colour has come up a bit darker on screen.
I have not had to cast anything on in 4 ply to give my hands a rest, in fact I have socks on the needle that are languishing in the corner.
I am knitting away while binge watching the Bea and Rose podcasts, I spotted one by chance and enjoyed it so went back to the beginning. I do have to have a break between each episode just to give my eyes a break (and make a brew). If you have not seen these I recommend having a quick look.
The snow has all but gone now, I went into Ammanford after the MOT ( a very nice, well within budget job) and there was scarcely a trace of snow and lots of empty shelves in Tesco. I only had a small list and filled that easily.
Today we did have a little flurry or two but the sun came out and the pavements are clearing. Both the dogs were happy with their walks today, Rufus was full of bounce and had to have a little extra time.
I had to remind Ben that he is no puppy a few times as he was determined to find every little drift and plunge head first into it.
Both he and the SO (who walked to the post office to get a card sent off) are now snoring in unison beside me.
I think that is all I have to share today, Francesca's cardie is blocked and I will get the buttons sewn on later and put it in the post on Monday. She sent a text from work on Thursday saying that although the journey in had been long and cold she was toastie warm, thanks to hand kitted socks, cardie, hat , mittens and shawl.
I knew that it would all come in handy.
Time for a cuppa before the dogs have their 4:00 o'clock walk.
Take care and enjoy the weekend as much as possible.
