I had a day off work yesterday.
I finished darning in ends and sewing on buttons for a newborn sized Gidday cardigan. for my niece's friend. It's a great design, seamless, yoke increases are just yarnovers and the bands are knitted as you go. I'm still thinking of more newborn garments for Christmas - but tiime is running out (sorry to remind you!) and I may just knit a few Milo vess.
I've also blocked Quill, one of TSS shawls. I'm hoping it will ook alright, as when I took it off te bed last night I realised that I hadn't pinned the wires on one side! I just hope that the washing will have made it look 'finished'. What an idiot!
And I've cast on the last pattern from TSS. It's Sonder, and knitted in a bulky weight yarn on size 8mm needles. I'm using stash, Elann Seta lana. a wool silk blend. It's not as bulky as the given yarn (but fluffyish) and my tension with this thickness is TERRIBLE. so I'm usign 7mm needles.
Only a little bit knitted. A few years ago I gave away most of my needles, especially the large sized needles. I have only one longer 7mm circular. And it's soooo old that the cable's not that flexible any more. They're Addis and a bit slippery with this yarn. It might be the cables making my work more difficult, so i've ordered two new pairs, one metal, one birch.
Mr C's birthday socks are also cast on. His birthday is in the first half of December which is a real pain with Christmas around the corner (knitwise!).
I'm forbidding myself to do any sort of stash diving this weekend. I have yarn out alfready for baby stuff, and don't need any more temptation, thank you!
