Seasonal Flu

I am ill….the flu….I am not a good patient, I am in fact an impatient patient.  I have had the hot cold hot cold thing, the headaches, the runny nose, the itchy throat and now I have a cough, hopefully, I will feel better once the cough becomes productive eugh….

Anyway, all I’ve done since last Wednesday is knit!

This is what I‘ve been working on

A slouchy layering top…this was an order, and if it hadn’t been for the absolutely delicious yarn, I might have given up as the pattern was a pain in the you know what! However, after contacting the lovely designer, she has made amendments, all good! You can read more about it here

I have also finished this lovely cardigan…I bought the yarn last year when I was in Australia. I have very special memories of the day I bought the yarn, pattern and buttons needed to complete it

I made and sold all these baskets

I also completed my Moira jumper…which is so so luxurious, but the neck has grown rather too much as I suspected it might, so I shall crochet a row of holding stitches behind the rib so it doesn’t keep slipping off my shoulders Surprised smile

I have also been to Scotland to visit my lovely Aunty Sally and Allan…oh crikey, as I look through my photos I’ve done far too much lately, lol!! No wonder I’ve got the flu!!

I was asked if I’d like to test a new little sewing pattern, which I did…sooo gorgeous, I’ll show you when it has been published Winking smile

Anyway, I’m whacked now, need to sit and do nuffin’ other than knit of course…wonder what I’ll be casting on next?

    Wow! You HAVE been busy, Marianne! I’m jealous. I completed my baby shawl and it’s gone to the little darling who arrived a week ago.

    I love the sweater hanging on the line. I can see what you mean about the collar and hope you can rescue it. It is really very nice. Feel better soon. x
