Xmas present

Started a scarf in Aran , pattern is Irish Hiking scarf, here is a pic of WIP . Will post again with an update.

Fingerless gloves

Gloves now finished and DD2 is very happy with them, knitted in Aran yarn they are very warm indeed. I will have to find time from somewhere to knit a pair for myself.

Finished items!

Finally finished the bolero :) (Hope you like it)

It was such a big project that i was very pleased indeed when my DD2 asked for some fingerless gloves.

Thanks for your lovely comments. This is the first time i've knitted using this yarn (think it had just arrived in the shop) there was a jacket already knitted up in the shop and that mind my mind up for me, finished the back, just the sleeves to go now, not made as much progress as i would of hoped by now, too much going on in everyday life and that's the reason also i haven't posted on here for a while, hope to catch up a bit now and start posting much more:) Thanks for looking and your interest in my blog :)

Current WIP
So far i have knitted the fronts of this project, here is the left front. Hope you like and thanks for looking.

Current WIP

This is my current WIP, knitted on 10mm needles, which knits up nice and quick (thats good for me, as i can sometimes get fed up mid way through a project because it's not moving along fast enough), it's a King Cole pattern and the yarn is called Aero, very nice and soft.

Here are the lovely items sent to me through the dishcloth swap over on Angel Knitting Forum, two dishcloth's, Thorntons chocolate bar and lovely smelling handmade soap, i'm a very happy mouse :)
