So I am finally getting around to it

I know that I was going to post over the weekend to prove that I still do knit but then life got in the way…..so I had some time today to actually get things done and wanted to post while I had a chance. I have some exciting news my lys has agreed to sell my handpainted yarns and I have sold all but 3 out of 8 that I gave her!!  I will be dying some more this week and I will post some pictures before I hand them over to her 🙂

On with the knitting!

I have been a bad Aunt I still have not finished taterbugs baby blanket in fact I frogged it because I didn’t like the way it was turning out so I am starting that over 🙂 But I have made her a little hat

I have also started a sweater for her using baby bamboo from sirdir I am really liking the way it knits up and how soft it is.

I am almost finished with my hogwarts sock swap 2 socks I just have the cuff to go and then I can get them out. For my ISE 5 pal I have started and restarted and restarted one more time and then gave up with the yarn and decided on something else so I ditched the pure silk and mohair and went for the Noro silk garden and I was looking through some pattern books for stitch’s and in my barbara walker book I found the perfect lace stitch pattern so I decided to use it just make it a little different so I don’t have much done yet but here it is
