I won't show you any pictures of the garden - it's not something I'm good at, I just about manage to keep it tidy [2015 Resolution - do more gardening!]. Instead I'll bring you up-to-date with my WIPs.
When I'm having a crafting session, I like to sit on the floor, on my lovely floor cushions and spread everything out around me. I like to alternate between the various WIPs so that I feel I've made some progress on all of them.
I've been working on my crochet blocks for the BAM CAL 2015. I'll do a separate post on this month's blocks shortly, but I also made three more small squares to add to the January blocks.
I decided to do two colourways and do two of each so that the four small squares would be the equivalent of one of the big ones.
I'm still working on the Miette cardigan.
I'm on the sleeves now. I've been having to use DPNs but my preferred method of knitting in the round is to use two long circular needles. I only had one circular in the size I needed until yesterday when I popped into town and bought another one - should move along a bit quicker now.
Finally I'm making another bear.
Grace bought me the Mrs Bakery Bear pattern for Christmas and then she bought the Mr Bakery Bear for herself. She sent me a copy so we're both making him.
I've only got one arm and the sewing together to do. I should get his shorts done before I see Grace, so we can have a nice knitting session together working on the sweater.
In return for showing her how to cable, she is going to show me how to do Kitchener stitch properly. For some reason I can't get my head round it - I understand the logic, but can't quite pull it off. I love it when we have our knit and natter sessions.
I'm at that lovely stage now where I can see the finish for the two knitting projects, so I'm already thinking ahead and browsing new patterns on Ravelry. The sun is still shining and the knitting is good. I hope you are enjoying your day. See you soon.
