Cable Coziness

I actually have a finished project!!!! I first saw this on Celtic Caston’s blog. I love this blanket, it is soooo warm, in fact I fight with the kids and the cats for ownership.

                              Pattern: Lion Brand Cable Comfort Throw

                               Wool:     Lion Brand Thick and Quick

It is such a quick and easy knit. I’ve already started another one. It does come out smaller than what it looks like in the pattern, but it is a perfect size for sitting watching TV or knitting. In fact here is a picture of Smoky, who thinks the balnket is his!!!!



Happy Birthday

I finally have some finished objects. First a pair of socks for my niece

I used a basic sock pattern, but then added a cable twist. The wool is a skein I won in a blog competition from JCHandmade.

The second finished object I had’nt even planned on making. My friend who just had a baby had knitted lots of squares for a baby blanket, she had sewn some of the squares together but then got frustrated with it. One day she brought a brown bag to work, and asked me try and do something with it. The bag contained wool,lots of knitted squares, some joined together with threads hanging everywhere. I nearly frogged the whole thing, but I gave it a try.

It came out really pretty.

Finally the “tween” is now a teenager. Let me tell you the terrible two’s is a piece of cake compared to tween and teenagers.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone. I have been such a bad blogger lately, but I ‘m hoping to blog more frequently now. We had a wonderful Christmas, I had to work Christmas eve night but it actually makes you appeciate what you have. When you are taking care of critically ill people, and seeing their families spending Chistmas in the hospital, or the patient with no family you realise how fortunate you are.

My best friend had her baby on Christmas Day, a little girl.

I do have quite a bit of knitting done, finally found my knitting mojo,I’ll post pics this week. So now I’m off to get the dog groomed, followed by my 3 kids 6 monthly dental appointments. Have a great day.
