Now there's a turn up for the books. A project finished already and we are only just into double figures! Admittedly, I cast these little beauties on a couple of days before the new year began because I just couldn't keep my hands off the scrummy yarn. The pattern in 'Dave' by Rachel Coopey and the yarn is 'Twinkle Gobstopper' by Easyknits in colour way 'winter warmer'.
There's no doubt about it, stripes make the job so much quicker! There's always 'just one more' stripe to knit before........ love it!
Here we go then, on with the plain red ribs for me eldest daughter. No stripes to encourage me now, so I'm on my own. Need to press on with these and complete by the end of the month. That's the 'carrot' so that I keep a little more up to speed this , rather than letting schoolwork dominate my every waking moment. So far, so good!
We've just been out for a bite of lunch and look what I spotted in the front garden. Quite a few of these little pretties are in bloom, oh dear! Not sure what will happen in the Spring!
