Not so lazy spring

I didn’t get the peacock shawl done in time for Sarah’s graduation yesterday, but the ceremony was wonderful and she now officially has her Masters and woohoo!

I will have pictures but I’ve got to get them off the camera first so they might not show up until next week.

On the knitting front: I’m 30 rows from the end of the peacock shawl, I only have the seaming on the Baby Surprise Jacket, I’m most of the way into the berry baby hat, and I have a sock pattern all picked out.

Just add buttons!

I re-cast on for the socks that I was designing.  The original one is far to small and nothing is going to help that so slightly larger needles (2.5mm vs 2.25mm) and an extra repeat should solve the problem.  Unless my math is wrong, which is always a possibility.  I’ll get a picture of it once it’s a little farther along.

Tonight though I’m planning on doing some sewing.  Need to get some bags done for people & see if I can make the box bags that I’ve been thinking about.


About Jadedknitter

I'm an author, a knitwear designer, a painter, and trying to find my love of the kitchen again. I write romance novels (they're candy, for the brain!) and read mostly history. I love to knit in the evenings curled up with my pug and watching whatever documentary strikes my fancy. My designs are born from a desire to knit something that I can see in my minds eye but can't find a pattern for. My current crop of paintings have been Celtic knots, I've drawn them for years now I'm colouring them in. Who knows what I'll end up doing next!
