Well 2009 has turned out to be rather a crazy year. A year full of surprises and many a time of insanity.

Blogging has become rather spasdmodic and I have far too many wips on the needles.

So over the next few months I am hoping to get a litle upstraight in the knitting arena and I hope to tell a few tales along the way.

So to start - a little treat. I had an operation on my hand earlier in the summer and couldn’t knit for a week. So when the dressing came off I endulged myself. I loved this book when it first came out, some lovely patterns. So when you see this yarn less than half price you just have to treat yourself to knit this


Moss st short sleeve cardigan using Sulka 

I can’t believe how quickly it has knitted up – lots of moss stitch but I am really pleased with the result. Here we are so far.


I did have one of the sleeves sewn in but noticed a mistake so I need to undo a few rows and sort that out before sewing it in again. I am going to concentrate on finishing this over the next few days as I would like to wear it on Thursday. There is an optional belt which at the moment I think I am going to do but will decide for sure once it is all sewn up. The belt will be a quick knit – 18 stitches of rib for 125 cm.

I will leave you with photo’s of my contribtion to the sock draw in September!


Happy knitting.
