This photo was taken on Friday and I've made quite a lot of progress since then. It's going to be a Modern Pixie Sweater, another gorgeous pattern by Elena Nodel and such a quick knit. The large needles, thick yarn and lots of stockinette means it's just perfect for some mindless knitting. Fab :-)
The yarn photo I posted yesterday is destined to be another Elena Nodel pattern. In November she is running another mystery KAL and this time I'm going to be knitting for my 5 year old son. He even helped dye the yarn with me using food colouring and a slow cooker, great fun! I find hanging it up in the shower to dry works best at the moment as any drips don't matter and it's out of reach of naughty little hands ;-)
The other big thing going on in my life at the moment is that I've inherited a toddler group! Basically the former leader had had enough and I was the only person who wanted to take it over. She asked me at the start of the meeting if I wanted it and at the end she announced it was her last day. For her own reasons, which I''m not going to go into because I would find it hard to be diplomatic, she has decided not to do a proper handover so I've been thrown in the deep end a little! I'm finding my feet though and feeling very positive about getting more people involved in the group and improving it's reputation so we attract lots of new mums. I enjoy being creative, organising and being in charge so this should be just perfect lol!!
