A finish!

I have finished one of the cardigans I have been knitting, the grey one, it seemed to take forever to knit the front band, as it was knitted all in one, almost 500 sts.

I'm quite pleased with the result, this is the first time I have made anything large for quite sometime. It does need pressing, but otherwise I'm very pleased with how it has tu

rned out, must be almost 16 years since I have knitted anything like a cardigan for myself.

Food a big bag of lovely yarns

Whilst at work today I was providing technical help in a food lesson. The product being baked was carrot cake, it set me thinking, I don't know why...possibly because some pupils said they didn't like carrots. If you can use carrots, why not parsnips?

So tonight I tried my own variation out. A picture of the finished muffins is up from this. You wouldn't know unless told what ingredients had gone into them....but they are delicious, and both Sam and Edwin like them.

The big bag of lovely yarns is from Kemps...a smashing variety of yarns that I will probably use for more scarves.......Perhaps I should try to sell some of them?

Not finished?

While I've been ill I have been knitting something less taxing, short rows, etc.

However, I've nearly run out of the jade coloured mohair mix, am wondering whether to cast off at the end of the ball and use as a trim on another future project, or should I change colour? I have white and cerise that are the exact same yarn make up.

I'd like some input, I am tempted to join on the other colours.

Grey Cardigan

The grey cardigan that I showed in my last blog is now in the final stages. However, as I have swine flu progress will be slow...there are almost 500 sts on the front band. It's all scrunched up at the mo. Am not fidgetting much at the moment as I keep dozing.
I might tackle a tiny project that will not need so much concentration.
