Cardigan finish

I finished the cardigan on Tuesday night, and started the sleeveless jumper for my someone special. I quite like the cardigan, and true to form, the weather here has warmed up, this is a rather cosy cardigan perfect for cool summer evenings.Even though I got the cable wrong, I did manage to copy the mistake onto the other front, so it looks deliberate :D.

My someone special has said that he would like me to make him some socks...that is going to be a first for me, as the only socks I have ever made have been baby ones, more like bootees than socks. Well, we'll see. If anyone has any tips on sock knitting I would welcome them.

Aprons, bag and knitting

I've not been in the best of health lately, and have been knitting mostly. However on Tuesday I spent 3 hours making a couple of aprons and a shopping bag. The cardigan I'm working on just needs the sleeves doing now, then it's onto a sleeveless jumper for the "someone special" in my life. This time it's a request for something specific.
The aprons are for work. I put a book on top of the bag to give an idea of the size. The cardigan is made in Brushstrokes yarn, Autumn Hue. I took a close up of the cable band on the front edges as it is different from any other cardigan I have made. I rather like Brushstrokes yarn, this is the third thing I have made from it.

Beret finish

That didn't take long. However, I have already found it home, as I made the smallest size, and it was a little snug on me. There are three sizes, so I'll be making myself the middle size.
