What will today bring ?

Every day bring us a new challange in one way or another even if we dont relize it each day i try to be posative, helpfull and not moan as much as the prevoius day but working with the public can put a lot of strain on this theory so try to do to others what you can expect of them and it might just all work out nicely .if not just count to 10...........or in my case a 110 !!!

Go sis

My sister has actual asked me to help her find a project for her to do over the winter as she is fed up without a project or something to do .................well blow me away.
For years she has watched me be very passionate about my knitting and smiled at how enthusiastic i can get
when a fellow customer comes into the shop and we start talking about yarn pattens and so froth,she shakes her head as if to say her she goes again .

Well i have found some lovely chunky self patterning yarn and have cast on and ..............whooos shes away so far i have only had to put one mistake right ..but I'm waiting for the visit of night time (Jon take me to Dee's I've gone wrong )
secretly though i am very proud of her shes going great since she hasn't picked up the pin for at least 20yrs plus......cant wait to she how it goes i shall keep you posted

chunky crofter waistcoat

the weather on holiday want that wonderful for the few days that it rained i managed to complete my waist coat....
It took me longer to find some nice buttons to set it off .......the ones i put on it i don't really like but they will do till i find some that jump out at me

 i loved knitting with this wool its so cleaver how the stripes turn out, the waistcoat is mainly stocking stitch apart from the cabled boarder which sets it all off nicely

Finished at last

Well Ive finished my green sparkly cardie and im very pleased with it
the only thing is its a little bit big but that was the smallest size i knitted next time i might go down a needle size just to make it a little smaller but i have had lots of comments on how nice it looks what do you think?

i have some cream sparkly yarn i think this pattern would look nice knitted up in that too.
