I've still not done anything more with my granny blanket. I need to make a few new squares and for whatever reason I haven't felt inspired to do so yet. Instead I've been concentrating on my cardigan. I've finished the side panels that give it it's shape and I've picked up stitches and knitted the garter stitch band on the front. Now I'm working on the edging at the bottom, also in garter stitch
The construction of this cardigan is rather interesting. I find with these style of patterns it's easier just to read the instructions for that section, follow them to the letter and trust they will work out in the end! Seems to be going ok at the moment lol
After the hem I've just got the two sleeves to do and weaving in the ends. Should be some straight forward and relaxing knitting, bliss :-)
The other WIP I want to show you today isn't actually mine. My eldest son (nearly 6 years old) came home from school yesterday and very proudly showed me his sewing. I think it's supposed to be a bookmark but who knows! He begged to do some more sewing at home so as I'm always keep to indulge creativity (ok, maybe not always keen...!) I let him pick out some yarn and get sewing. The blue yarn has been knotted in on the back and he's going to weave it in and out of the yellow stitches. Not entirely sure if this technique was taught to him or not but it looks quite nice I think.
Yay for creativity lol :-) For more creative posts please visit Tami's Amis. I'm probably not going to be finishing this cardigan for Friday so not sure when I'll be posting again. I'm very tempted to join in Knitting and Crochet blog week this year after being reminded about it by Sarah at Craft from the Cwtch. Depends how much free time I get to plan things at the weekend :-) Fingers crossed though, by for now!
