Have ya missed me?
I hate exams! Well haven't been doing much except studing- and exams. Yuk
Anyway you want the knitting! I finished, but forgot to take a picture of the lace-edged baby cardigan- the mum loved it and said it will be used for the babys christening in september- can't think of a higher compliment than that. Also made a little earflap hat from the new DB Soho yarn- pink of course. It was so quick! I was at the yarn shop buying the pattern at 2pm and it was made and gift ready at 5pm! Whoo hoo I see many more in the future. I would go up a needle size though. Its a paid pattern from my LYS so I can't tell you it here! its a secret hehe!
Also have been knitting the sindwinders with nona- a great pattern but I stuffed up. I got the wrong gauge- yes I did a swatch. But i must of tightened up during the cause of the knitting- so either I do the next one with the larger width, or use a thicker yarn on the 2.75mm needles. I didn't like the fabric the swatch made on the 3mm needles.
In other news, I have joined the mystery stole along 3. I never finished the other one but am going to do this properly. I am getting some Jaggerspun Zephyr from Sarah's yarns - who are AUS$20 CHEAPER than the only aussie supplier- and that includes shipping!!! I aslo went to get some needles today to find that.... my LYS is getting in ADDI LACE NEEDLES!!! whoo hoo, so I have but my name down for them. When everything arrives its, pick the beads and we are off.
I currently have 4 other socks on the needles and now 2 single socks so I am going to abandon all of that, cast on some baby booties and do a little more on my jumper.
