A roundup of the things I'm working on at the moment.
I've only finished one of the things I was working on last month, the Knit Baby Jacket by Yarnspirations Design Studio.
As I finished the Knit Baby Jacket I cast on another little cardigan for Eleanor's friend's baby. I've gone for a short sleeve one this time as it will be summer by the time she grows into the 6-12 month size. This is Autumn Leaves by Nikki Van De Car. I'm using Knit Craft yarn which I picked up in Hobbycraft in the Lemon colourway, though it's a more saturated yellow than the name lemon would have you believe. It was only £1.50 for 50g and though it's nice and soft, it is a little bit squeaky being acrylic. I should add that I don't find all acrylic yarn squeaky, the Sirdar Snuggly which I used for the Knit Baby Jacket was lovely to knit with but I suppose you get what you pay for, it was more expensive than the Knit Craft.
I've now finished one of the socks I'm working on for Eleanor. Socks don't usually take me long to knit but I haven't been picking my knitting up as much as I usually do, and I've also been working on other things so they're taking longer than normal. Eleanor won't mind, she's got plenty of other socks she can be wearing in the meantime.
A little bit of work has been put in to my commercial yarn scrappy blanket. I have two on the go, the other is made up of squares from hand dyed yarn. It's been a while since I've picked either of them up to work on but I really enjoy adding the squares so I need to make more of an effort with them.
I've given myself permission to put the cardigan I'm knitting for myself to one side for now, I'm not enjoying working on it at present so I'm hoping that absence makes the heart grow fonder. We'll see.
