Hello, how are you all?
I decided to treat myself to a lie in this morning. I am not saying that I don't do this regularly but this morning I really wished I hadn't. By 9.00 am it was already trying to go dark! Which was a real pity as I was hoping for some really fantastic photos of Aaren. Aaren is a great pattern and I was lucky enough to have enough yarn to make both the body and sleeves a little longer than recommended My twelfth sweater of the year! This has been a long slow job to finish it, I think because I had already made it once. It has rained almost continually all day 'cept for when it tried a a little sleet! It has been an indoor day. Elenya took a few photos on my camera but it wasn't a great success then she got out her posh one which worked out a lot better but we were a little low on motivation for photos by that point. So that's it, a couple of indoor photos of a really fab sweater and none of my goodies from Harrogate.
The yarn is lovely and warm and cosy I just wish that it wasn't trying to burr up already! I have quite a lot of cashmerino in stash but I don't think I will be buying anymore it is a little frustrating to spend loads of time knitting something and see it start fluffing from the get go.
Well I also finished something this week. A bag. I started it two years ago, put the handles on a year ago and then it has taken another year to make the crochet flowers and the lining. I think it has turned out pretty well though I can't imagine that I will ever use it so I think it will go into my present stash.
My latest knitting is for Elenya, Creature Comforts, the yarn was bought for me by my Auntie Sandi to make me a dress but I think the colour is fabulous on Elenya so she gets it. It is a great colour bright and cheerful just perfect for a dark winter's day.
