WIP : Lacy Scarf


I started this lacy scarf about two weeks ago, but have not made much progress. The pattern for this scarf comes from the UK Simply Knitting magazine and is one I have used before.










FO: Hat and bootees


I knitted a cute little hat and a pair of bootees which I think go well with the rest of the Everything Emma doll's outfit.

March update

It's now over a month since I last posted here. I find that during the working week I am tired in the evenings and after dinner I tend to  make a beeline for my craft room to spend a relaxing hour or two knitting and listening to an audiobook, usually with a cup of tea beside me.

During the summer I spent quite a bit of time doing some patchwork and only worked on a couple of small projects, the latest being this hat and sweater for Tessie Bear.


 
I have three projects on my needles at the moment; the first is a lacy scarf which I cast on about two weeks ago, the second is a little baby cardigan and the third a baby hat. I am knitting the cardigan and hat for my Everything Emma doll, so am making the premature baby sizes, as they are  a perfect fit for a baby doll.

It is now autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and here in New Zealand daylight saving is due to end the weekend after Easter - a sure sign that winter is on it's way! My thoughts are now turning to winter clothing and I am planning to knit myself a new cardigan. I bought the yarn last year and have chosen a pattern, so will probably make a start on it in another week or two.
