Yes, there is definitely a nip in the air, an easterly wind blowing and I my friends, have been busy.
Since my last post, I have knitted and finished two cowls (one for me and one for my son - think I may have told you about this one already but didn't post any pics), anyway I will tell you about these on Friday.
I'm definitely in the "Cowl" mood, so I have now casted on another one for Mr H. It's the first time that I am knitting on 9mm needles (nearest I have come to these are 6.5mm, so this is a bit of an achievement!). Think this one is going to go very fast, which is good because Mr H will need it as he works outdoors.
See my shiny new Knitpro needles....bought these at the Knitting & Stitching Show...love them...they are soooooo shiny.!!!
Remember my Baby Blankie, well I am progressing (albeit slowly) on this. The body of the blanket is now finished and I am working on the lace to go around it but its boring. I have to do approx. 468cms and I am BORED!!. I think I have about 5 repeats of the pattern to do, which in the scheme of things is not long, but I can't work up any enthusiasm to finish it....arrgghhh!!! I will have to though as baby is due in approx 5 weeks time and I will need to give something..(wonder if they would like baby booties instead (*sigh*). Here's a bit of the knitted lace anyway:
The Greenleaf Wrap is still in the same condition it was in, in August. Nothing to see there, so move on.... Same for the scarf from hell (and that's going back to April)....moving on...
Oh and I frogged the Mohair Wrap, wasn't working for me! Will have to re-do but not until next year now!!
So all in all that's it. I have to cast on one more cowl, this time for my daughter and then I need to finish all WIP's before the New Year (or so I tell myself, unless I see another Cowl pattern I like (which I have and then....well.....I've been eyeing up this book - putting on my Christmas list):
