A new project

We had a lovely morning at my sister's for our weekly knit and natter on Wednesday.  It's been a few weeks since our last get together because of a few other things happening in our lives, so it was so lovely to have a chatty morning out.

I needed it and so did my little pirate boy.

I've still got a couple of projects on the go right now which means I just HAD to start something new.  Considering that I am sewing together squares for a blanket then I think I can be excused for beginning another one.

This time it's a cardigan from THIS book which I got for my birthday, and not a blanket.

Eeek, scarey, do I dare even start?

I bit the bullet and have finally gone into the territory of clothes.  My last attempt resulted in me pulling the garment apart after only a few rows because I realised that I had nowhere near enough yarn for that particular project and as it was discontinued, I couldn't get any more of it. 

  I decided that I'd better get on and make it now otherwise it'll be too hot to wear it soon which was a bit kick in the pants to do something.

I've also been lucky enough to have the chance to get quite a bit of it done uninterrupted today.  Little Miss R is at school and my Uncle and Sister took Master M away for the day to the movies and then some play time at my Uncle's house.

It's been a case of needing time out desperately as things have been really getting me down lately.

So for now I'm really enjoying my new project and am looking forward to hubby arriving home late tonight. 

Hope you're all having a great week.

xx Susan

I love the colours in this cardi Susie. Can't wait to see it finished. Glad you're getting a bit of me time.
