Finished these today after a break, so long a break that I sat down yesterday halfway through the second sock and thought I'd look at the first to see how much longer to make it, only to discover I'd lost the first sock. Panic and frantic tidying followed, finally found the first sock so now I have a pair.

Finished this baby cardi this week, a present for my childminders newborn grandson. It's knitted in Sirdar Countrystyle, pattern from The Knit Stitch by Sally Melville, very easy to do as all garter stitch but boring. Now going to do a bigger version in a raspberry colour for a friends daughter.

Finished blocking this yesterday,heres the fence modelling again, Dh tried to take pictures of me wearing it and failed dismally, now cameras out of batteries. Its stretched a bit during blocking but think I could have blocked it a bit harder.

Well I got the yarn and beads
for my next project, its the Pink Lemon Twist mystery shawl 3, yarn is ebony zephyr but do I use silver beads at the top or grey AB (think oily puddle) at the bottom, veering towards grey but not sure, well I still have a few weeks to decide.

Wel as mentioned the other day, making Queen of the Waves, getting on quite well with it, heres progress so far.
The shading in the yarn is starting to become more clear, unfortunately just after taking this picture I discovered a dropped stitch 10 rows down but managed to save it with a crochet hook. Phew!!!!

Cast on for Queen of the waves by Ilja Leja on Tuesday. It starts at the hem and decreases so loads of stitches to cast on and you feel lke you are getting nowhere. 5 days and 20 rows later I can see the pattern emerging. Hopefully it will speed up a bit as the rows get shorter. Enjoying knitting it and as its nearly all garter stitch its a good pattern to do while watching TV.

Well here is a picture of the newest addition to the family, Speedy, we got him on 7 May
and he escaped today as my toddler left the cage door open by accident, finally tracked him down to under the boys bed. Luckily I'd moved my stash from there 2 days ago (it was in a banana box) otherwise Speedy might have found some new bedding. Think we should rename him Houdini.
