After this week, probably. It's all a bit much really. The children are clearly insane, and I'm catching it off them. What fun. It was Mothering Sunday today, and we spent it in Spitalfields Market, where I failed to buy a little black dress and did buy some star print African wax cotton (5m for £12!) and some posh tea and had daytime gin (the best gin) and a chocolate brownie, and it was great until about three quarters an hour ago when we had the "I'm really tired but I'm not going to bed, I'm going to sit here and make NOISES and kick you and PUT MY COLD FEET ON YOUR TUMMY and whine" time until I gave up on supper and threw them into bed with mild threats.
|They are quite cute when they want to be.|
I started a jumper a few weeks ago, part of the Mason-Dixon #bangoutasweater KAL, which was super fun and not hard at all. A picture says 1000 words; a collage even more, and saves me boring on.
Genuinely one of the easiest and quickest knits I've ever made, and such a great, cosy jumper at the end of it. This is not my last go at this pattern, and I'm going to use the Lett Lopi yarn to make an owlsjumper soon, as well as two Penguins jumpers for the girls.
What else is new? The Knit List is moving along slowly. Most of the stuff is still in storage, but we're looking at about another fortnight of building chaos until I can put my living room stash back in its proper place.
The following things are being worked on:
Audrey in Unst: I'm at 26/36 rows of twisted ribbing. I put it down to work on the Stopover and only picked it up today. I can't say I love it. I can't say I don't love it, but I don't love twisted ribbing ONE BIT.
NEW: A bright yellow Owligan: I love this. It's bright and spring-like and will be a great cardigan to wear outside once I don't need a coat. So, you know, May.
The Rainbow Raglan: huh.
These things are still in storage.
Simon's Cobblestone jumper
Simon's massive man socks: I bought the yarn.
