Rain Rain Go Away….

I’m off work this week and all it’s done so far is rain. I know it’s only Monday but it doesn’t look like it will let up until Thursday if the weather forecast is to be believed.  Last week was awful at work I worked late every day trying to catch up from having most of the week before off ill. It’ll probably be the same next week after being on holiday this week. But I’m not thinking about that now.

I hardly knitted at all last week as I was just tired after work but I’m back on track now. Yesterday I knitted a little red baby beanie for a friend’s new baby it was a really easy pattern from the The Second Little Sublime Hand Knit -baby pattern book I bought in the summer, I’ve cast on another one this morning in a lovely chocolate brown to try to make a Christmas pudding hat like the ones that Erssie makes. 

I had afternoon tea with Nic and met her new cat Coleman, he’s beautiful. So laid back it’s not true. It was lovely to catch up and have a natter about knitting, Nic showed me her latest projects (a lovely mohair scarf for a colleague – yarn bought in the Lake District for £1.50 a ball!!; a green baby jumper in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran for another of our friends who is pregnant) and I told her what I was thinking of making.

1. a cream scarf for a colleague made of a cashmerino baby type yarn, I’m going to do a moss stitch section at each end and attach some silver beads in a star pattern and the middle section will be a 2×2 rib so that the scarf doesn’t have a ‘wrong’ side.

2. Gloves for me knitted top down with i-cord fingers and then like the Knucks pattern from Knitty.

3. something with the mohair yarn that I just frogged. It was an attempt at To Dye For from the first Stitch n Bitch book but I didn’t like it.

Tomorrow I’m going to London for a days shopping and will be visiting Selfridges and John Lewis on Oxford Street as I want to have a wander around their knitting sections (and the christmas section of Selfridges because I LOVE CHRISTMAS). I just hope the weather isn’t too miserable……..
