Knitting, knitting and more knitting.

I haven't written about my knitting recently. I knit all year round, it's never usually that hot that I can't. Lots for the new baby, cardies, blankets, a shawl and several soft toys. I have also finished the year long dishcloth swap, sent the last package out on tuesday. Socks, a cowl and a scarf for Christmas presents. I not good on taking photos so nothing to show of these.

Bex is not one for baby colours and picked out these for the next set of cardies. The pink is a baby bamboo and so so soft to knit with. I love this little one, it's knitted all in one from the top down. The sleeves are magic loop, a new technique for me but one I seem to have master with some success.

Once I'm on a roll with something I can't stop. Here's the pink bamboo nearly finished and I've started the coffee one also. No photo as yet.

Last but not least I have another pair of socks, these are for me as they don't match and I'm not fussy. Just using up a skein of this lushes self colouring yarn. I love purple and turquoise.

Lovely knitting Pippa! I too knit most of the year even through the heat of the Aussie summer, dishcloths are good when the weather is super hot.


Love these little cardi's. Would love the pattern to try it.
