More progress...

The cardigan was taken home last Wednesday and apparently it fits the 2 year old perfectly. I saw a photo of it on him and it looks quite good... couldn't steal the photo though.

In other knitting news, I've the first sock of 2 Christmas pairs very nearly done... another 2 or 3 inches and its done... with just the mate to go. I also finished my sisters cowl tonight while watching some James Bond, so I could actually get all my knitting done before Christmas without taking more stuff off the list.

Here's hoping!

i have just literally finished the baby cardigan. Its only been on the go for 6 weeks or so which is just too long. But here's a very bad photo of the cables on the sleeves, the rest of just plain. Didn't have enough blue buttons so I used a nice light yellow instead.

Socks tomorrow for snb. Have to rip out and redo the heel though, that won't be fun but at least its not a cardigan!

This is the cowl I was talking about last time, for my friend Jolene. Please ignore the shiny plastic chair but it was the only decent surface available for picture taking :)

In this cowl you can at least see the pattern, and she seemed to like it, which I hope is a good sign.

I'm just about to start seaming the sleeves of the baby cardigan. Its been floating around far too much and it is starting to get on my nerves, lol! To the needle!!!!

knitting has taken place

I finished this cowl for myself last Monday and haven't taken it off since! Its lovely and soft, snuggly and quick to knit. I knitted it out of patons symphony and took a grand total of 6 hours!!!!

I have another on the go too, and the baby cardigan is nearly done too... just the ends, sleeves and buttons to do.

Have Christmas socks started as well, so much knitting and no finishing going on, lol. Hopefully that will all change tomorrow with SOMETHING being finished!
