Catch up


HI guys,

Time for a catch up.

Well in the last knitting post I mentioned a new project on the go……well here it is


Another baby cardigan with matching hat. I used Sirdar Supersoft Aran in green from The Wool Shop in Leeds.


I loved doing the cable work and I am really impressed with my stitching up. This as been a massive learning curve for me and I do have to admit I am so glad that the Wool Shop is only around a few corners for the help when I got stuck.

I have also completed a crocheted rabbit for Duncan.


I used the pattern from Simply Crochet Issue 2. The pattern is called Itty-bitty bunny. The wool I used was Hayfield Bonus DK  shade number 0931. Duncan picked the wool and it was ok to use but the black bits did come off in my hand. I would not recommend this wool for a small child……….except for Duncan.


I think I may have to look for some fluffy wool for the tail next time and have a play…..what do you think?


Oh yes my desk is tidy for once as I decided yesterday to have a tidy up on my desk………I don’t think it will last long but I can hope.

Take care

Luv Jane XX
