Sock knitting has been slow, as has every other kind of knitting, this week. School is slowly monopolising my evenings at the moment. I have begun the little Aran cardi for Sophie, that I bought yarn for at half-term. I struggled to find a pattern that I liked and that I had sufficient yarn for. In the end, I plumped for this little bolero design by Debbie Bliss.
The yarn is Rico's 'creative poems' aran and is pure wool. It does need hand washing though, which is not ideal for a baby garment. The colours are beautiful though and it is made n one piece, so not too much of the dreaded 'sewing up' either.
I've spotted a sharp, colour-change line that I don't like. I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention last night! You can see where I mean, over by the circular needle. In fact the flex is circling the exact spot!!!! So you know what this evening's job is going to be. It's such a quick and easy pattern, I'm sure it will be finished and ready to show next weekend.
Oscar's had his two hydrotherapy sessions this week and is now up to 8 mins in the pool each time. He absolutely adores it!
Right, I now need to sort out some school bits for tomorrow, sort out the mess in the kitchen and sort out my knitting!!! Have a great week.
