All things Knitting..

This week has been mostly knitting on the craft side, and on the sunny days spring cleaning and gardening. 
It is lovely to have had all the windows open and the bed quilts blowing on the line.
Sadly today, it's back to English weather, peeing with rain.
So the log burner is lit and we are snuggled in again, I really thought spring was on it's way.. 

 I have finished the third Hap, this really is a great pattern and so easy to knit. Pattern bought from Ravelry, its called "A Hap for Harriet" by Kate Davis Designs.

 Baby cardigan knitted for our soon to be great Grandchild, Just the seams to sew up, I am a sower for goodness sake so why oh! why do I hate sewing up knitted garments :0)

Loveknitting had this great yellow wool on sale, now who could resist that. Well, not me, so I am knitting myself this bright pair to cheer myself up. Yellow always does it for me..

It was not all knitting, I did manage to sew this block for Sally. She is the mama for April for ST2 group. It is a big old block 18"X14", ( I do prefer appliqué rather than pieced), so it was a learning curve for me.There is a pattern for this quilt over on sewfreshquilts http://sewfreshquilts.blogspot.com/ 
called Dog Gone Cute..

I picked what I thought was the easiest, but believe me it was't..

On that note, going to sit by the the fire and get some knitting done..

Keep safe and keep stitching.........................Doti...
