I apologise for not being around much last week.
The 'coughes and sneezes' season has started already as I picked up a cold and I feel that I haven't caught up with myself yet! However, I think I am on the mend now.
I also have been dealing with my neighbour's landlord as her shower has been leaking into my flat into my kitchen cupboards causing damp and mold to grow as I can't use my kitchen cupboards. It is not pleasant, and after many phone calls I have to get the work done myself and claim on my insurance. Nothing seems to go straight forward anymore.
Anyway, enough about boring stuff and annoyances, I have been knitting a lovely slip over top from a pattern by Debbie Bliss from her Fall/Winter 2008 Magazine.
as shown on the cover
I am using a chunky yarn, in a dark grey in a wool/acrylic mix.
I would love to be able to knit with pure wool and use the top designer yarns
but my purse doesn't allow.
So we will have to wait and see if it is a good substitute. I did do a tension swatch and adjusted needle size so all being well ........
It consists of moss stitch which is one of my favourite stitches since I mastered the art of it and the front has a lovely big cable to do.
I don't knit many items for myself so this will be a treat and I think it will suit me.
I also whipped up a little tea cosy when I was away last week which is here
and added some crochet edging and a crochet flower.
I love knitting these, as they are very quick projects to do and I used up some of the yarn leftover from the 'cute little knitted dress'.
Have a lovely week
