Knitting for One #17

My birthday was last week and I had a wonderful day, my trip to Wool for Ewe was fantastic, I bought a beautiful James C Brett pattern for Flutterby wool. This wool is so lovely and soft, but I made the mistake of sewing on the arm wrong and when I tried to take it out to do it again it would not come, I had to cut the arm off, this was rather disheartening so my hubby took pity and thought he would help by sewing the new arm on, he proceeded to sew it on outside in, argh, in all I knitted four arms for this tiny all-in-one, needless to say I will not be working with this yarn again unless its a blanket!

So I’m off to see the new baby today, I hope mum likes the all-in-one and the beautiful Cherish set I knitted.

It’s my birthday tomorrow and I’m of to a LYS, so excited to see a room full of wool. Started a new project this week called Arielle from Misty by Kim Hargreaves it is a very interesting knit so far.

Also started a BSL course this week so I will soon be a level 2 signer, this has been a good week, I entered a couple of competitions this week too maybe my week will get even better 🙂

Well that’s room number 1 spring cleaned 🙂 Still plenty to do but at least it’s a start.

On a knitting note, great news! I received a parcel of wool, not just any wool either. It was the wool I couldn’t find anywhere to finish off my throw. It came all the way from Estonia, happy days.

I try not to drink to much caffeine but I have to say today has been a caffeine induced one, just haven’t got the energy to go without it today.

My daughter turned 21 yesterday and I think I must have turned 61 because I feel like it today 🙂

Received Colours of Shetland by Kate Davies for Mother’s Day, just can’t wait to start something from it.

As always there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day, I feel like I constantly complain about not being able to fit everything in, maybe I should win the lottery, quit my job, stop cleaning and then see if I can fit more knitting into my day. Good plan 🙂

Well I have had quite a froggy week, one was because of a misprint in the pattern, on one page the colour chart said one thing and on the other page it was another colour chart which of course I didn’t notice duh 😦

And there was this one, but i only frogged it because I just didn’t like it which isn’t annoying at all, just a bit of a shame 😦

As you can see the other half helped me, I ripped it out and he rolled up into a giant ball of wool 🙂

As you can see its rather a large ball.
Now what will I make?

I finished the layette for my niece, I hope she likes it as much as I do.

I have started my muckleberry hat which is beautiful, taking back a few rows already though as I am not happy with a piece but hopefully it will be my only mistake 🙂 lol that’s funny. No way will it be my only mistake.

It has been a lovely weekend but with being back to work now it just isn’t long enough, I am glad to be back to normal though. Made some homemade marshmallows today and its like eating sweet fluffy clouds, I will never be able to enjoy shop bought marshmallows again.

Marshmallow and strawberry skewers for pudding tonight.

I have been making Sarah Hatton’s Cherish for my niece this week and it is a lovely pattern but the instructions are not very clear, got some help from a fellow Raveller so it’s looking more promising, you will see from the picture that there is a lifeline as I have already had to take out some of it.

Hopefully this is it this time, fingers crossed. The wool I am using for Cherish is Debbie Bliss cashmerino and it is such a treat to work with, what to make next with it?
