I've not worked on my daughter's cardigan much recently. Bit silly really as all I need to do is two increases at the sides and then just carry on in pattern. The hard part was earlier on while doing the shaping and measuring. Following cable charts is a bit taxing right now lol
I've finished one of my Blueberry Waffle socks and have this second one cast on and ready to go. I'm enjoying working on these. The pattern is relaxing but interesting and the yarn colours are my favourites.
However I've also done one of the classic things a time-frustrated knitter does and that is to cast on more projects. Two in my case, more socks. Because if you're finding it hard to keep working on two projects, why not double the amount? That will work right?
These ones will eventually be for Mr Soaring Sheep. I'm thinking Father's day in June is a nice manageable deadline. And failing that there's his birthday in September lol. He just wants some plain vanilla ones which suits me fine. I've got a second skein of this yarn for me so I'm looking forward to seeing how it knits up and to hopefully inspire me into deciding which pattern I want to make my socks in.
I've also cast on some socks using the self striping yarn I got from Fab Funky Fibres. The pattern is very simple, every time I start a new colour stripe I do a row of yarn over/k2tog. It's from this free pattern if you want to see what it looks like. I thought it made things a bit more interesting to knit without being too taxing for my brain lol.
The children finish school on Thursday for their Easter holidays. Hopefully we'll get some nice weather to go for walks and maybe have a play around at the allotment. We went down a couple of weekends ago and got some onion sets in and have lots of seed packets for things we want to try to grow. Hopefully this year we'll have more time to put into it with Mr Soaring Sheep no longer working away all week. The puppy thinks it's a great place to visit. I do wonder what our plot neighbours thought of the muddy paw prints over their white fleece ground covering :-p
