One done, two more started

I had a need for a quick fix project at the weekend, and found the perfect solution.
I printed the free
Interweave pattern for Molly’s Headband and used 18g of a 50g ball of RYC Cashsoft DK which I bought label-less for 50p from a bargain bin!The whole thing took 2 hours from start to finish, and it was an enjoyable little pattern. Great for quick gifts!

This pattern has been calling me for ages, and last week I suddenly realised that all my long-sleeved cardigans are pink! Time to remedy this.

I think (fingers crossed) that I should have enough Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran yarn in my stash for this. OK so it’s not a huge shift in colour, but it’s a start.

This pattern is interesting too – it’s another top-down seamless garment, there’s no gauge given and the instructions are for a “knit to fit” style which is really flexible and easy-going so far. I’ve just ordered some more Addi circulars as the pattern calls for 4 increasing needle sizes as you progress down. So far so good!

And - oops - I seem to have started another new project too. Well, I was waiting for the next size Addi needles to arrive, and I just felt like it!

It's the
French Market Bag from Knitty which I making using the Rowan Yorkshire Tweed aran yarn I got in my LYS sale for £1.08 per ball instead of £7.25!

Must go knit a couple more rounds before I have to fetch the girls and their 2 friends from school.

What a lovely cardigan pattern. Now are you absolutely sure you've got enough of the Debbie Bliss? Don't I remember you running out on something before, or am I dreaming.

I think you just enjoy living dangerously.

I'm sorry I missed your anniversary. Congratulations to both of you.

You are the bargain hunter. What good bargain wools and so well used.

I'm not sure exactly why but this site is loading very
slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or
is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
