Meet one of my ‘go to’ pattern books for 2 yr + knits. The teddy on the front page (pattern 6) and I are old friends although it’s been a while since I last finished one – also this dark blue ‘Guernsey’ (pattern 4) is another easy one I’ve knit several times. You can see my versions HERE and HERE
I’ve been giving my fingers a little break since my charity box of baby goods finally went on it’s way…..a long enough break to think about what to do next……..which really wasn’t a hard choice……….wanting/needing something fairly straightforward……….something I was comfortable with…………in the end I decided to move on to bigger stuff – 2 yr old boys! You might think the yoke of the blue Guernsey looks complicated – if you can count and cable (move one set of stitches over another) it definitely isn’t. Most of the pieces are plain stocking stitch so it hasn’t taken long to finish the back and work my way up to the yoke on the front.
My reading came to a standstill for a little while as well – however our library (which I’m sure like every other library in the country….possibly the world) has been closed, now has begun a delivery service. Weeks ago when I was going through books like they were going out of fashion J0 Nesbø’s first book (The Bat) took my fancy so I ordered his second one (Cockroaches) which arrived on the doorstep the other day. So far it hasn’t grabbed me in the same way but I’m sure there’s time for that to happen before the end.

Ginny from Small Things hosts a monthly meme called Yarn Along which I used to take part in. Sort of a ‘show and tell’ featuring the knitting and reading you’ve been doing recently. Do pop over and see what others have been up to.
This month….June…. I’m Back – and I’m showing and I’m telling 🙂
