My poor neglected blog……. I’ve been away for some time, life is hectic at the moment. To be honest I’ve not had much knitting to share so there was not much to blog about.

My job has taken over all of my free time – in my last school I used to have time at weekends for knitting, in my new school I work all weekend and evenings too – So not much time for knitting.

Any free time I do have has been spent on wedding planning – which I’m really enjoying. So far we have booked the venue, photographer, band and bought my dress. Next on the agenda is bridesmaid dresses – I think I will have to get on with that in the summer holidays.

Anyway, I finally have some knitting to share (its in progress but this is the most knitting I’ve done in months)

Blue lace panel

This is the lace panel from the lace front cardigan I’m making for my ‘mother-in-law to be’. Its Patons 100% mercidised cotton dk – the pattern is not on Ravelry – I can’ remember the pattern number but I made one for myself a couple of years ago – so scroll back on my blog or visit my Ravelry page to find out more! This project has been a burden, I’ve not had much time for it and the lace panel requires concentration, its not one for kntting in front of the TV! I will be glad to get it done and see the back of it to be honest.

Baby moss blcok cardi

This is something I started last night on a whim. I was home alone and decided to have a Friday night free of school work – I rummaged in my stash and found some Debbie Bliss Merino DK in a mushroom colour – I wanted something quick and easy so I though I’d make a baby garmet. I know a couple of people who are expecting at the moment so it may become a present. Its ‘Moss Block Baby Cardigan’ by Jennifer Lori – available free on Ravelry. Very soft wool and machine washable so great for a baby cardi. I’m enjoying the blocks of moss stitch, its a very satisfying thing to knit.

Summer holidays are fast approaching so I will hopefully have time to get back to knitting, there are loads of unfinished projects in my knitting stash and bags upon bags on wool just crying out to be used!
