I finally managed to finish Imogen's knitted leggings last night, & phew they fit!
I used the softest wool I could find on the day at our local wool shop, it's lovely, but I kinda wish I had used Alpaca as this doesn't scratch babies skin due to the fact that the fibre has no barbs. I am however knitting THIS pattern now in a beautiful cream alpaca 8 ply which is awesome to knit with.
Spring is in the air around me. I'm feeling the spring cleaning urge which is always nice.
I took this pic from my laundry window, we have two huge magnolia tress in flower in the back yard. I posted THIS post when we first moved here 1 year ago, it's amazing how much the back yard has changed in that time. Eventually...like when we win the lotto or something....this will be the view from my kitchen. I can't wait as I currently look upon my neighbours shed, it will be nice to see the kids playing while I'm fluffing about.
Hope you have a lovely weekend, especially those of you lucky enough to get to the wearable arts last night.
