The plan was to cast on a ribbed beanie and while I was knitting that, hopefully another project for me would be easier to find. It seems to have worked and I'm almost done on the Beanie.
After much searching I've finally settled on a pattern for myself, which is Baby cables and big ones too.
Its a really lovely looking pattern with a lot of different textures to keep the knitter's interest. I think my wool and alpaca blend will work well with all the stitch patterns, so I've eagerly cast on to get going. I've got gauge with a slightly smaller 3.75mm needle and as it seems to be a jumper that grows a little with washing and wearing, probably due to the garter stitch yoke, I'll be knitting the smallest size. Unfortunately I cam home from work with a nasty headache yesterday evening so I haven't made much progress yet, but as my evenings are pretty clear this week I hope to really push on with my knitting. Its typical that having found a gorgeous jumper to knit the weather has now turned quite warm, but after all the grey days and rain lately I'm certainly not complaining!
In the meantime I'm off to continue my latest book group book 'The Paris Wife' on my new found love my Kindle, only just started the book but it really promises to be a good one. Our last few book group choices have been very interesting and quite different topics, so I'm looking forward to really getting stuck into this one. I'll let you know how I get on next week. Have a lovely day everyone, hope you've got gorgeous weather like we have x
