Halfway through Nakniswemodo

Dont know if you remember back to the start of the year, but I set myself the challenge of making 12 sweaters this year, as part of the nakniswemodo (knit a sweater a month dodecathon) group on ravelry, the only rule being they had to be adult sized.I've now passed the halfway mark, this is a crochet cardi for me crocheted in Yarnyarn lochan, I got the main colour at woolfest last year and the purple contrast this year, the pattern is an old one from Me magazine (late 80's or early 90's) which was a jumper, I've adapted it to a cardi.

Sweater no 7, 8 and 9 are all on the needles and now the baby stuff is all finished (for now) I might manage to actually finish all 12 by the end of December

Bakewell tarts and skye bridge scarf

Crocheted these bakewell tarts for Rhymetime in Fort William library to use with the song '5 currant buns in a bakers shop'. They were used for the first time last week, the toddlers loved them so much that some tried to eat them.
This is a Broomstick crochet scarf for the stitches on the bridge project on Skye, I did a panel measuring 26cm x 200cm, hoping to go over to Skye for the day when all the panels are on the bridge, they will be up from 22nd to 26th October if anyones interested.

A to Z

Knitted this Alphabet blanket for my niece's bump, its due next month.
Also knitted this blanket buddy for the bump.
and crocheted this sun hat for a friends wee girl, she liked it so much she wore it Sunday and Monday even though there was no sun.

Not much knitting done this week as I have been helping with the Kilmallie free church holiday club doing crafts, the craft theme was the armour of God so plenty of swords, shields etc. We had around 100 kids each day who all seemed to have a great time.
