First off, a pinwheel blanket - yet to be blocked because of the crappy weather. This was knitted in Laines du Nord - Dolly Mixture - 10 balls, I picked this up for a total of £16 from the Laughing Hens Stand at the Woolfest - what a bargain!!!!! I have finished this 3 times and frogged the finish twice. A normal cast off resulted in really bad curl-up (worse than here), and a picot cast-off curled like buggery too. So after some advice from the Knitties I finished it with 4 rounds of moss stitch and a moss stitch cast off. It is still curling a bit, but hopefully after blocking it should be ok. It is for friends who are expecting their first baby (a girl) on October 22nd. I am also knitting them a few other bits which will be posted later.
Next up, a WIP. This is an Argosy Wrap which I am knitting up in Noro Silver Thaw which I also picked up for a fantastic price at Woolfest in July - a bag of 10 balls for £25 - why did I only buy 1 bag - ggrrrrrrrr!
And finally 2 crappy photos of the latest additions to the Household.
I will get better photos, but at least they are still. They are 10 weeks old, and both VERY sweet. There dad was a Manx cat, and they have definitely got his genes -
very long back legs, they run to you like a dog when you rattle their jingly ball, they jump VERY high, and most freaky of all - THEY HAVE NO TAILS. The ultimate in freaky!!!
