New Knitting

I've made a good start on the yarn I bought whilst up in Northumberland a couple of weeks ago. This is the back of a cardigan. The yarn is a King Cole Bamboo/Cotton and it's absolutely gorgeous to work with. I can't wait to finish and wear it, though it's going to take a while yet. The sleeves are done all in the fancy stitch, definitely not a two evening job :o). Still, I'm feeling less guilty about watching the tennis!

Socks Again

I finished off the second pair of socks a while ago, but forgot to post a picture, so here they are, all done and waiting for winter.

I've since made another pair for OH - when asked what colour he wanted, he said "bright", I think that's what he's got! I'm a bit socked out at the moment, my next project is a cardigan. I bought some gorgeous fuchsia pink bamboo/cotton yarn when we were up at Kielder Water a week or so back - it's not safe to take me anywhere :o).

Tennessee Waltz - A Start

I've started quilting the huge Tennessee Waltz quilt top I finished last year. It's going to take a while, but I've done the first 3 blocks - I'm not even thinking of counting how many there are to do just yet! I'm not completely convinced about the swirls on the star block, I'm going to do the white blocks first and see how I feel about it then. The back's going to look stunning :o).
