A start has been made

I've made a start on the new green jumper!!! I'm having to read the destructions VERY carefully as this is a totally new experience for me!!! 

First I made the left front shoulder and realised that I'd NO experience whatsoever with reading knitting charts!! A first and a challenge for BC3!! Before that, though there were short rows to add to the mix!!

Just got started and lo and behold I had to shape the front neck. Those few stitches were then put on a holding thread while I tootled off to start on the front right shoulder, short rows and again starting the cable off too. 

You can see on the picture below that I'm 'on the way' but it's a challenge.

Starting the hat!

Now I forgot to show you the hat I'm making the other day so here's a picture and the start of the project. Yes, more cables!!!

Here's the link to the pattern which is on Ravelry.

I need a warm hat with a brim so this seems to be the ideal project.  Jumper abandoned for a few days!!!

Another knitting project

Now this is a HUGE ball of yarn that was also in the freecycle pickup!!! That’s a Dreamlit shuttle sitting on top of it!! 

I need a new winter hat with a brim to protect my eyes so I looked around Ravelry but came up with nothing. Well, that’s what I’d started doing when a friend (thanks, Sue) sent me a pattern which is EXACTLY what I was starting to look for. So, when I’m not knitting the second green jumper, tatting a doily I’ll be getting on with the hat!!!

Now for something

A little different!!! Tatting!!

I don’t ‘use or do’ doilies but I LOVE making them - sometimes. I saw this pattern and simply HAD to make it. In fact a very good friend gifted it to me which was very sweet of her. I’ve done the centre but I’m not sure when I’ll get back to the rest - knitting calls!!!
