Poor old Charlie had a little setback yesterday when he had a sneaky nibble of his wound, making it twice as bad. I had hoped not to have to use the lampshade contraption on him, but it was duly rescued from the attic and placed upon him. He knew, those brown soulful eyes looked so sad as hubby and I were threading his collar through the loops. Today its all looking much better so it was the right decision.
This is hubbys Cobblestone jumper.
Its coming along, I’m not sure if I should have made it a needle size down to make it denser. I really don’t know what is the best thing to do with jumpers (or any knitting come to that) so I’m just going to plod on this time and if its a bit drapy at the end, it will still be lovely. I wouldn’t want it to be uncomfortable for hubby if the material became too stiff.
This is my Irish Hiking Scarf.
I think its turned out quite nicely, It has more dark reds than purples in natural light. I haven’t blocked it yet. I was going to, then I wore it to coffee with Mum and Dad and basically its been worn since. I added beads to ten rows at each end after knitting, I just thought a bit of sparkle in the middle of winter always cheers things up a little.
In this piccie you can pic out the reds more and if I’d had my wits about me, I would have whipped it off and taken piccies of it in natural light.
I didn’t go to Tuesday knitting as I spent time with my beautiful son as he’s been working extremely hard for the last couple of weeks and I’ve barely seen him.
