Well after last week’s see sawing between working on what was on the needles and casting on new projects I decided to press on with what was on the needles, so I finished off the In Threes cardigan for Evelyn. I knit this in a dk weight so it would fit her now, the pattern calls for what I’d call an aran weight but the pattern has got good age range sizes and this pattern knit in the aran will do all my girls even Caoimhe as she’s on the small size for her age. So I intend to return to this pattern for each of them.
Also on the needles last week were the Stormy Sky socks. Well I finished the first one and cast on the second. I managed a couple of rows on the ribbing on the second but its on the needles and should prevent the dreaded second sock syndrome.
So what with finishing off the cardigan and the first sock and casting the second sock straight back on I had to cast on something new so I cast on the Hermione hearts Ron hat that’s on my list and I’ve the ribbing done and ready to start into the hat pattern itself.

I’m looking forward to this mix of cables and lace, some of my favourite stitches. I’m knitting it on dpn’s and using some Manos yarn in a silk blend.
I also have this basic beanie hat that I’m going to cast on for my Mum. I knit this pattern before Christmas in both the ordinary and sloucher version and both in a dk weight rather than the sock yarn called for and both came out great. I’m going to use this stylecraft dk yarn for it.
I’m looking forward to seeing the green work up with the flecks of red and blue through it.
I found the pattern for the flowers in last weeks post. I know a few of you were looking for them. The pattern I used was this Pinwheel Flowers one. I couldn’t find it as it fell down the side of my chair but the pattern was so easy that after the first one was made I didn’t need the pattern for the remaining ones, hence loosing it !
Just in case you missed Friday’s post with the cardigan, lets show Lady Evelyn modelling her new cardigan again, after all you can’t have enough photos of this yummy face now can you !
