In progress

Well I've been really slack lately and just haven't found the time to update this. I've had a bunch of things on the go or getting ready to start and have even taken photos, but nothing has made in onto my blog. So here is a little bit of what I've been doing for the past 3 weeks or so (and don't get excited, it's not much).

Here are some bits that, when assembled, will make the cutest little toy. Unfortunately I need my 4.5mm needles for something else so this had to wait.

These are some progress shots of my Sahara. I start this on the 4th of Jan and am really excited as it's the first top I've ever made for myself. I'm just hoping that it works out. The pattern calls for 100% silk but I think that's pretty impractical with a 19 month old so I'm making it out of some SWTC SoySilk that I had lying around. I'm not sure how long the sleeves will end up because it depends on how much yarn I have left.

This is 2 days work (I'm not actually that slow, I just don't get much knitting time)

This is 4 days later. The best thing is, as it's knitted top down, you can try it on as you go, and it fits like a glove. Sorry no pics of that as without the collar all you can see is boob :)

Also thought I'd add: we had a great time over the holiday period. Euan just loved having Dan at home and Dan loved being here. We didn't do anything too exciting but it was just great family time. I even managed to leave the house without taking my knitting which the boys seemed to appreciate. It's been a bit blergh having Dan go back to work, but it means I can get back to doing Angel Blossom stuff and Euan can get back to seeing his friends, so it's not all bad.
