This week was busy and hectic with not a lot of sleep, some of the smaller ones had very disturbed nights, luckily its not a cold or flu they are coming down with and I’m hoping we have turned the corner on that…knitting time was sketchy this week as any of you who have been following my stitching side of things as well will know about my crazy challenge in that..
I did however get some more done on One Row Lace Scarf . I lay this aside to work on the Harry Potter scarves and I’ve forgotten how much I’m enjoying this pattern and the Noro yarn is such a delight to work with..I’ve been debating since I started it whether it was going to be a present or for my own use and I’ve decided its going to be a present and I’ll knit it again for myself.

I will get a closer picture next week of the stitch as I forgot that this week!
Thank you all for your hints and tips on socks…sorry Faith but crocheting them still fills me with terror, perhaps after I manage to knit a pair I’ll try doing my crochet and see how I get on but be warned I’ll be full of questions ! Anyway I’ve ordered dpns as I think I may prefer this method over the magic loop but we will see and I ordered some yarn also so hopefully those will arrive this week…I love new yarn coming in the post..
I did order some more cotton for dishcloths and for the Victorian Scarf . I chose a rose colour for this as it looked like an antique pink and I’m opting for cotton in this scarf as I think this will give it the stitch definition I’m after with this one. Once the One row lace scarf is finished I’ll cast this on.

I have some new needles to knit the Harry Potter hats on order also as I hadn’t the proper size and the children have also put in orders for dishcloths in specific colours but more of that in my dishcloth challenge during the week…
Looking forward to catching up with you all and seeing what’s on your needles and I want to thank you all for your wonderful comments last week, I really did appreciate them.
