It’s been a busy couple of months and I’ve completed a few projects, but the weather’s been a little uncooperative and the light hasn’t been good and I know I’m making excuses!! 🙂
I finished the Rocky Coast Cardigan in January and I even blocked it! Woohoo! I’ve been wearing it on and off since its blocking and I love it loads. I feel though that it could do with a harder blocking to make it a little larger. I would love to use this more as a layering piece but the sleeves are a little tight, so they need blocking wider as well. Anyway, I’ll do that some point in the future.
Yarn: Brown Sheep Lanaloft Sports Weight
Needles: 5.5mm KnitPro
Modifications/Notes: My guage was off, so I used the 40″ instructions for a 36″ fit and it’s worked fine, but I want it a little larger, hence the ‘want’ to reblock. I actually picked up more stitches for the actual sleeves and it’s still not enough.. reblocking will help a little.. I have huge upper arms!!!! 😦
I really love this cardigan. I like the look and feel of it. But I think that I could lose a few kilos and it’ll look so much better.. that’s the aim now, so we’ll see in a few months! 🙂
It was my birthday at the weekend and one of my gifts was a Kindle… :love:
Obviously, I couldn’t have my Kindle getting cold, so I made it a little cosy…
I love this cosy and so does my Kindle. I’m a complete book person and I always felt that reading physical books was the only way. It’s not. I like that I can read multiple books on the go, without having to carry the actual physical books around and for travelling, I can see all the advantages of the Kindle. Even if it’s just leaving the house for a few hours. This is one of the things that I now put straight into my handbag, when leaving the house, like my little knitting project.
At the moment, I’m reading on the Kindle and it’s great, and I’m still reading a ‘real’ book at the same time. I love my books, I love my Kindle.. 🙂
Let me know your thoughts whether you’re an avid reader or not… I love to hear them. Oh and Happy Valentines everyone.
