>Well I’m 11 days post op from a total hysterectomy and am currently going through a surgical menopause. This has seriously hindered my 2011 progress as I get so tired and lethhargic. Sometimes it’s an effort to hold a cup let alone knit!
I have decided to amend the listso that there are two items per letter where I was torn between a garment and an accessory. I figured as long as I knit one item per letter it won’t matter much. I have a few projects on the go but am getting a case of startitus as I need to finish something. I need to learn some patience.
Here are photos of the progress of some of the items
D for Dominika the first front am on the collar part
and the back. This is knitted in the GORGEOUS Rowan Felted Tweed Aran
V is for Vivienne from the lovely Kim Hargreaves book Precious
I have adpated the pattern and am knitting it in the round in the soft Rowan Cashsoft 4Ply. This is for my eldest daughter who doesn’t normally let me knit for her so it had to be made.
Q is for Quack first completed project
this is knitted in Rowan Pure Wool DK and is from Cute Knits for Little Feet
O is for Odette Blanket for a friend. This is a field of dreams blanket. It works on the premise knit a baby blanket for a friend and the baby will come. It has worked previously.Knitted in Rowan Baby Soft
J is for Jazz Socks for daughter munber twoe. I love the colours in this yarn. The pattern is an Erika Knight one from Knitting Magazine Supplement
I am so tempted to start another project. MY friend Aryn sent me the pattern and yarn to knit a cosy cable cowl which only takes an hour . I need to finish something. I haven’t crafted this little since well, I can’t remember.
