I hope you are all well on this fine Sunday afternoon and making the most of this wonderful weather?
It's been beautiful all week here which means the tubs and baskets need watering every night, a bit of a chore but worth it when they reward you with such lovely colour :-)
I'll share some photos later, but first I wanted to show you some of my knitted finishes.
I have been in a very knitty mood lately, finding it much easier to pick up and do a bit when i don't have time to sit for long, and these little cardigans don't take long at all.
The first two cardigans are the Puerperium cardigan, a free pattern which you can find on Ravelry .
I knit both the long sleeve and short sleeve version, personally I prefer the short sleeve, which is showing up more blue in this photo than the duck egg colour that it actually is.
This one is also a free pattern, JAY Baby Cardigan, again from Ravelry
The ones above were all knit top down. I'm a new convert to top down knitting, it's so quick and easy, and no seams to sew up!
These other two were done a while ago just form a basic baby cardigan pattern (and before I discovered top down)
I've been trying to use stash yarn, hence the same yarn colours and you might have noticed that I have yet to sew any buttons on. Despite having a ton of buttons I hadn't got any that were really suitable for baby cardigans, so a trip to the shop is planned this week and I can sew them all on together.
And here is the mum to be :-)
Only 6 weeks left to go. Poor thing has been suffering in all this heat.
We went out on Saturday and she caught sight of herself in a window and said, I forget how fat I am until I see myself in a mirror. Awwww, bless, she not fat is she, she's blooming :-)
The bite on my ankle has healed, well all except for the part that has scabbed over that is.
Thank you for the get well comments on my last post, it seems that quite a few of you suffer the same sort of reaction when bitten, I feel for you, it's not pleasant.
I've avoided doing anything except watering in the garden this week.
Here are some of the things that are looking good out there at the moment.
I hope you all have a lovely week
Until next time
