Ninja Mum!!!


Had a good week? Mine was busy and it didn't help that I've been suffering from a lung/chest infection and didn't realise! Felt rough, had a bad cough and tight chest but hate taking antibiotics so thought it would pass eventually. Wrong. Went to doc yesterday and am now on meds. Hey ho....

Am again joining in with Shelley for WIP-A-Long so here are mine....

First up my Linus scarf/shawlette. What a fab pattern! Will definitely be making this again. It's the first one I've made that actually stays on and doesn't force me to spend half my day readjusting it! I finished it on Monday and have worn it every day since! Would recommend it to anyone but especially beginner knitters as it's just garter stitch (plain knitting) throughout. Can't tell you how much I love this!

Along the top edge is a small little lacy detail. So cute and stops it from being boring (both to knit and look at)! The middle pic is the truest to colour as I made it in grey.

Next is the cable jersey I am redoing for a family member. Slow going but it's coming out really well. Very happy so far.....

I haven't done anything on my version of Ritas Aran Jacket this week. Too much cabling what with the above garment! Have stashed it for a while but will definitely go back to it.

Youngest child has requested a black balaclava so that he can pretend to be a Ninja (he does karate)! I HATE knitting in black but what could I say? So off the yarn shop we went early this morning and I have begun. This will definitely be a labour of love.....

Last up is not a WIP but something I adore! This stands on my kitchen window sill and she makes me smile every time I see her.....

I hope she made you smile too!!!
Til soon.
