Well I have made some progress on these two projects since I showed them to you last. The socks are based on the Rye pattern but made using sockyarn. They caught my Mum's eye when she last visited us so I'm going to give them to her when they're finished. As you can see I'm onto the ribbing of the first sock and as I started these in July I don't think she'll be getting them any time soon...
The sweater is for my son using the Little Spare Time pattern. I've rejoined the knitting after doing the front and back flat for the pockets. I think now I'm about ready to do the edging but I want to try it on him first to make sure the length is right. It shouldn't be far off but as my gauge wasn't quite right I'd prefer to make sure.
That's all I've got to show you at the moment. Pippin the puppy is taking up a lot of time in the day and then by the time Mr Soaring Sheep is home in the evening I'm too tired to want to do any knitting. He's sleeping longer at night now but it's still going to be another 3 weeks+ before he's allowed out for walks. For now all the entertainment he gets is either at home with me or when I take him out round the village in a baby sling so he can meet people. He's getting bloomin' heavy now though lol
His favourite spot at the moment seems to be squeezed between the sofa and the radiator. I took this photo this morning but he's snoozing there now. Funny boy :-)
