This week has gone by in a bit of a blur, we had James’ Confirmation on Thursday just gone so the middle to end of the week was taken up with preparations for that. He had a wonderful day. I’m still working up to a recipe Saturday but these days seem so busy of late that some weeks just go by in a blur.
Knitting time this week has been sketchy. I finished up the Basic Beanie for my Mum last night and got Caoimhe to model it this morning. I made the slouchy version of this hat and it’s knit in Stylecraft Life DK Yarn on a 4mm needle. I love how this hat can be worn many different ways and by just the amount of brim you do or don’t turn up will give you a different take on slouchy. Caoimhe loves this one as she can tuck her hair into it lol.
I started another dishcloth and although it’s a quick easy pattern I am 2/3 of the way done with it but have just not got back to it so the aim this week is to finish it and perhaps another! Well nothing like a bit of ambition. This is the Snowbaby pattern and I’m knitting it in King Cole Bamboo Cotton on a 3.5mm needle. For cloths I go down a size of needle for a tighter gauge. This helps with this pattern also as it stands out a bit more.
With the beanie done I’m going to finish off the Stormy Sky sock and press on with some cloths. I need to see what else is left on the list that needs to be tackled and sort out its yarn and needles.
I have some confirmation pictures this week and I got one of all the children together and mainly looking at the camera lol.
