Grey Days

well you can certainly tell it is Easter in my neck of the woods. Cold, grey and raining. The heating has kicked in and we are huddled up inside. The children have had friends to stay both Sunday and Monday night so the house if full of extra childish laughter drifting down the stairs.They are of an age now that they don't need very much intervention from me so I am tucked up on the sofa knitting.Emile Emilie, such a cute little cardigan, she has been my constant companion on the bus for the last few weeks. I bought the yarn Fybrespates Scrumtious, at woolfest last summer, for the specific purpose of making Emilie. The colour is wild! Rich, ginger, gold, the colour of tabby cats. It is not one I would normally wear but I just couldn't resist and I am glad I didn't as it is really lifting my spirits and making me happy.Emile I am onto the sleeves now. They are knit in the round from the sleeve head down so nice and theraputic especially as there isn't going to be any sewing up!
Enjoy your day

    LOVE the colour! So zingy! I knitted a 'top down' cardigan for my daughter recently which was great, though 300+ stitches round the yoke were a trial... Great not to sew up though, its the one bit I hate. There is a lovely top down summer cardigan/waistcoat in the summer Rowan magazine that I want to try. Just ordered the yran for it... :-D

    1. 300 stitches that sounds like a nightmare!! I am strugging to even contemplate summer knitting with the weather the way it is at the moment. Lets hope it warms up soon
