As I write this, I am tucked up in bed feeling very poorly, and most sorry for myself...apologies for crappy photos, but there's no foreseeable uplift in energy levels or wellness, so it's those or nothing...
Since my last post, I've been slogging away at my On the Beach, which I really shouldn't call a slog-a-long as I'm rather enjoying it.
The body is nearly done, I just have to try it on for length, then it's just the sleeves to go - huzzah! I'm well on track to have it finished by the end of June for the MustStash KAL which is very gratifying.
Regardless of how enjoyable *any* project is though, I am not one for monogamous knitting.
To keep the interest piqued, I've also made a wee baby cardigan for a derby couple in our league who've just had their first little girl. (Charmers purple, of course!)
Knit in the round, in 8ply; it didn't take long. It's a good 6mth size I'd say, so will hopefully fit the little one while it's still cold - she's about 12wks now, I think?
I was also tasked with the Very Special Request of making a "cupcake" beanie for one of my partner's daughters. I'm relatively new to their life, so I was well-chuffed, I don't mind admitting. I had to control my excitement, not go too crazy with my pleasure at being asked, but it was tough!
We looked at a few patterns on Ravelry, and then she carefully drew me a picture detailing what colours were to go where.
I've just got to make the cherry to top it off and she should be able to wear it this weekend coming.
Hopefully this bug will pass quickly, and I'll be back to full speed next post!
