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 !!!

magic knits

With two projects finished ......yes i know a new one is started ..........

Found some lovely self patterning yarn in this lovely knitting shop along sewil highway ......OMG .... its like Aladdin's cave
i was lost for hours the lady in the shop even asked me if i would like a cuppa as i was in there that long but there was so much to choose from and well i just cant help myself
i only went in for buttons
i wanted a project to do that didn't require thinking one that you can just pick up and put down  well i found this ooh
its knitted side ways and after blocking the fronts will fall lovely ..........well im sold
mixture of pinks and grey
the wool i have chosen is Jame c Brett lovely self
 patterning and even tho its DK its quiet thick wool so i bought an extra ball just in case so far looking

black tweed

just a few picks to show you my finished cardie love this and had loads off compliments it looks like  a shop bought one .....um is that a good thing or bad ....you tell me ?

Cardigan for mum

Last Christmas i knitted a card for mum but as yet i haven't seen here wear it so this year i thought id give it another go .........why do i bother
i finished the cardie and brought it in to work to show my sister Jackie i thought as i was knitting it it was coming up large so jac can help me out
when i showed jac ...........um mm she  said no that will drown mum she  kept going on she wont wear it Na no she just put it up and not bother she kept going on .... i was getting a bit fed up with her negativity then she proceeded to undo the buttons and try it on her self obviously it fitted her a treat as i said oh well you can have it but you wouldn't wear it would you ....i was shocked as she said oh great year ill have it its lovely and all day she produced this cardie out to all the customers to show off ........that girl will never cease to surprise me never would i have knitted anything like that for her but as true to her word they went away to France last week and she wore it i must get a photo of her with it on so for now this is the cardie in question

Mums loss

Jackies gain

preaty lace edging  the wool i used was lovely and soft with a small wool content so washed up  great              

finished at last

Well l finally finished my pink jacket and i must say I'm very pleased with.
it still looking for a nice large button bin every wear and looked on line but cant fins anything i like so far ................so using a nice pin brooch at the mo what do you think

 i changed this slightly to the original pattern as i had some wool left over i decided to put a shall collar on and i must say it turned out rather well

Top Hat !

The weather has turned cold and on goes the heating so decided to knit myself some new gloves
the pattern is  an old sirdar pattern i found in a charity shop , had some wool left over from my crofter long line cardigan its so soft and warm.....................they turned out so nice that i decided to knit a hat too.......
